Peppered Loach habits...

I've had my peppered loach for about a year. I recently moved him into a much larger tank and he's started this strange habit of burrowing into the substrate I have placed in that tank. He hasn't done this before (though the new material is smaller and more easily moved than the previous tank). He's even burrowed underneath some of the plants (artificial) that I have in the tank. I was wondering if this is some kind of normal behavior for the peppered loach, and he's just now able to burrow unlike the previous tank? Thanks for any information in advance!
