Question sleeper goby

My sleeper goby burrowed under a peice of lr. At night he sleeps under it. Recently he has been picking up sand and dumping it on the lr. Is this normal? At first i thought he was trying to hide his home. Could that be what hes doing?

I'm sure that's normal, since it doesn't really sound like he's doing anything out of the ordinary. Digging sand and tidying up their homes is really all they do. That and eat and sleep.
