African Chiclids question?

I have a 55 gallon with 5 African Chiclids in it.
Why are they moving my rocks to one side of the tank?
I put them back level, and the next morning they have done it again!
They take rocks from the middle and push them to the side!

They do it naturally. You can't stop them. What kind of cichlids are they?

My African cichlids (2 snow white socolofi, 2 red zebra and 3 yellow labs) are constantly excavating, they like to remove rocks from under or inside tank furniture.
It is kind of fun watching them come out of a cave, spit a mouthfull of rocks out and go back in for another load.
PS: they love frozen peas with the skin removed, I fed them some last night when I was feeding my plecos in another tank.
