From my experiences with them, they don't dig at all under normal circumstances. While breeding it is a possibility if they don't have any surfaces they want to lay eggs on (I use slate, but I have found mine laying eggs on the driftwood).

Judging by the pink belly the one on the right is a female, and the one on the left appears to be a male by the overall body shape, longer pelvic and anal fins (can vary), and the lack of blue spots in the black spot. Beautiful rams .
