Pairing a Tiger Pistol Shrimp and Randalli Goby

Took mine about 2 months to pair up.
Now they think they are architects, re-scaping the tank daily.

Those shrimp are pretty impressive builders.

Slow down with all the rapid changes to start with.

You added a bacteria supplement, may I ask why?
Looks like bacterial bloom to me.

Let it die off by not adding any more supplements.

Minimalist and bonsai aquascapes can be very nice if done properly.
