Dada, you replicated the biotope.

One question; Can I keep them without mud in a paludarium?

Yes you can with fine sand ...you can put some PVC pipes to create burrowing holes though

I want to keep 3-4 fishes in my paludarium. I am planning Golden Sand as substrate.

Only problem with keeping them in a paludarium is that they want brackish water, and a brackish paludarium isn't easy to maintain espeially given that you need to pick up salt tolerant plants
