My Fish moving gravel around?

I have watched my Betta fish move his new gravel around. Anyone else have this happen with their fish? Know why this is happening?

Yea it's their version of house keeping. Years ago when I was keeping New World Cichlids it was not unusual from them to move massive amounts of sand and gravel from one side of the tank to the other. You wake one morning only to find the carefully arranged aquascape you had done the night before was now buried under 40 pounds of sand.

When I keep salt water fish I had a maroon clown fish that would pick up with her mouth and move pieces of shell or tiny rocks out of her chosen spot. Then she would take her tail and fan the sand to move it out of that spot. She was beautiful, but a mean one, I couldn't even put my hand in the tank without her attacking it.
I never seen a Betta do that, so thats cool yours is.

Mine used to do that a bit too, when I first got him. He'd move the gravel and make little holes that I would catch him sleeping in later that night. Funny dude.
