Any recomendations of fish that bury themself

I saw a fish on Instagram that buried itself in the substrate (sand). It looked really cool and I would think that it would clean the sand as well. Therfore i would like to know if anyone has any recomendations for freshwater fish that bury themself. I have fallen in love with plecos, so something that looks similar to plecos. Eels also look cool, but an 120L might be too small for them.

Fishes are dumb

Possibility that it was a Kuhli Loach. They like to hide in the substrate...especially sand.

You could try a freshwater crab, cray fish, khuli loach, add shells and could do shell dwellers cichlids.
