they wont be matting but its just natural for them to dig :):):)......even if you move the gravel sand back in the hole, your fish will just dig it back up again :):):)

Actually Parrots can lay eggs and if they are both cleaning a spot they may be getting ready to spawn. Whether the eggs will be fertile, well that's another question.

135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
