Does anyone have information on how to care for Awaous banana and ctenogobius shuffeldi in an aquarium?

I've kept both, and I'm a terrible aquarist. Make sure to have some fine sand for the bananas, they feed by scooping up sand and running it across their gill rakers. They will also take live and frozen foods. Don't waste your time with plants, the bananas will eventually uproot them with their incessant digging/burying habits. I've had some stay buried for over a day, I thought they had jumped! Once the bananas get more familiar with you, they are quite inquisitive fish.

Do they like current? I am redoing my aquarium and I can make a slack water area if needed
