You sure you don't have a hitchhiker shrimp in there?
IMO, the most likely culprit out of the fish would be the Maroon Clown. They will sometimes dig when looking for a place to lay eggs.

I got rid of my Velvet Damsel due to a few things, and he was a digger.
He'd pick a rock overhang then clear all the sand out from under it to make himself a better cave to hang out in.

hahha, so i was watching my tank and i watched my blue devil damsel go where the whole was and take out piece by piece or crushed coral and also then swiped his fins against the rock to make an deeper hole.
how do i stop this?

The damsel is doing what it does in the wild. Unless there is a major concern about the rocks toppling over than you don't need to do a thing. If the rocks might fall, you should try to rearrange them or block the hole with a small pice of LR100g Reef

after supporting the rock, teh damsel was indeed the one who made this hole/ cave. its kinda col actuall, he will sit in there while my coral beauty will "bully" him and face the hole with his body and block the front of teh hole. real funny to wathc, im trying to catch a video though.
