Mine do the same thing. Got a pit dug out about the size of a large grapefruit. Been chasing one another but no spawning yet. Lots of Mbuna like to dig and create a little home for themselves. It fun to watch them going at it so diligently.

Digging is just what they do, not necessary associated with spawning.

Ha! I remember my first cichlid tank. I'd taken care to arrange the gravel just so and the next morning there was this huge crater and my first thought was that the filter had gone fluky and was sending a jet of water to the bottom.
Then I saw the gravel spewing out of a cave. . . :roll:
