Clown Moving Pebbles

I just watched my Pop, biggest (6 inch) Clown Loach, systematically pick up pebbles in her mouth and cast them aside and she dug for a morsel of food in the substrate. She'd grab them one at a time and then drop them off to the left or right. She continued to do this for several minutes until she got at what she was digging for. Her behavior was very deliberate unlike the Corys who just shove their noses into the gravel. It was a really neat thing to see.
I remember someone here mentioning that one night their Clowns had taken a specific color of gravel in their tank (I think it was black) and moved it all into their cave. All the other colored pebbles were untouched. This must have been how they did it, one pebble at a time like Pop.
My Loachy friends never cease to amaze me!
