My tricolor did it all the time into their stream as well as one on exhibit @ NAIB, especially the juvies that hadn't colored up yet. They'd dive under rocks in the water and stay there until I'd almost have a heart attack and dig them out. Never had one drown, they usually show up landside after I stop pestering the tank.

This is a very similar behavior to native frog species like Leopard, peckerels, and what not diving into the place they think they will be safest. If you know the pond/stream well you could pull the frogs right out from under the rocks close to where they dove in. If tricolors live near waterholes, this behavior makes sense. Leucs might have a similar behavior.
