Hello Everyone
I found a gorgoeus candy cane shrimp and gorgeous goby paired up with it.

My tank is only 20 gallon...

ARe they going to prevent my water from being the crystal clear it is now with constant dust in the water column from their relentless digging?

What you think?>
NEED YOUR INPUT BAD.

Thanks,
Tim

You see a lot of clouding to begin with but after they have dug a bit it should settle down unless it's extra dusty. You will find their stirring helps keep the sand bed healthy and the detritus feeds corals.
I have pistol shrimps in both my tanks and apart from the small sand dunes you'd never know it.

I have a bunch of these guys and no issues. The stir-ups they may cause will be temporary and if occurring usually only in the beginning when they start digging.
