Anyone know anything about a Rigilius Goby?

I was at "That fish Place" today to purchase a diamond goby, but alas they were out. The fish area supervisor looked around and told me that the closest thing they had was this Rigilius Goby. It stated that it was peaceful but I don't really know much else about it. They had beautiful sleeper goby's but the supervisor said that they would get too big for my 75G tank. They were already about 5 Inches and he said that they would be getting bigger. Any input is appreciated.

UPDATE! I guess the common name is a brown speckled sand goby if this helps

I can't think of a sleeper goby that would get too large for a 75G tank. I don't know much about the other goby, but here is a link:
Istigobius rigilius, Rigilius goby

Thanks for the link, I found this one also but it didn't really tell me much about it. Just wondered if it is a good sand sifter.

Really wish they would have had the diamond goby, this one was cheaper than the diamond goby (and also on sale) so he wasn't just trying to sell me something that costs more.
This is the link for the goby on "that fish place"'s web site

It`s a bullet goby Scott. Excellent sand sifter.
