Can ya dig it?

Our Aborichthys elongatus can. The little b*ggers have been digging holes all over the tank, then filling them in.

Yesterday, one discovered that the rectangular airstone, buried under the gravel is prime real-estate because when you dig under it the stone makes a nice solid roof to the aperture created.
He's dug up most of it by now and I managed to get some pics of him in action. Every 5 seconds, he emerges with another grain of gravel.....amazing!
