Firemouth Cichlid behaviour

I have recently bought I young Firemouth who is around 2 inches, it seems quite shy and stays in around its cave which I expect as its new, is has just started to dig a pit in the sand in its cave and whenever a BA tetra swims into the cave the Firemouth will chase it back out the entrance, I am wondering if this is normal behavior and could it be it is building a nest? There is currently just the one Firemouth in the tank and I am under the impression it’s a Male as it has pointed dorsal and analfins, thanks.

I have a pair of firemouths and the male does this. He has a huge pit that he's dug underneath some driftwood. He'll come out of it every now and then with pieces of gravel in his mouth. Definitely normal behavior!
