Diamond goby & pink spotted in a 125g?

So I have a 125g reef and I currently have a pink spotted watchman goby. A monthor so ago I purchased and added a diamond sand sifting goby from petco for $12 and it died within 3 days. Not sure if the other goby was to blame, but the fish was intact and no markings on it.

I was thinking on adding another one when I place my liveaquaria order but am worried that theres not enough room for them both.

Does anyone have both of these fish and does anyone have any advice on having them both?

I havent seen the pink spotted show any aggression towards any other fish but I do have a shrimp killer in the tank, either the goby or a pistol shrimp managed to kill off 5 cleaner shrimps and 4 peppermints. :-(

Any input welcome! Just tossing around the idea of adding him and would like to see what you guys say.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
