I wouldn't get any of those gobys (hi fin red banded), specially with the fish you have. They are very tiny and would just get lost in your big tank, not to mention they would constantly be hiding from the larger fish.

I got one for my 28 gallon nano once with a pistol shrimp, the shrimp disappeared right away and the goby lasted about a month. It was eating but always very scared of the larger gobys I had. It eventually disappeared too.

Find a mated pair of neon gobies. Then, add a midas blenny.

I could recommend a ton of gobys

Diamond sandsifting goby - great sand sifter
watchman goby- cute but hides in his hole
clown goby- green, yellow, or black - perch on the rocks a lot
orange stripe prawn goby - never had but looks cool

The list goes on, just look on these two sites for ideas:
http://liveaquaria.com/product/aquar...t=1&page_num=1
Saltwater Fish Goby, Saltwater Fish Blenny, Saltwater Fish Jaw Fish

The second site also lists blennys jawfish and dragonettes. (dragonettes are very hard to care for usually)

I would stay away from any of the tiny gobys, the ones less than two inches since they hide alot and usually just get lost in a large tank with large fish. The clown gobys might do fine since they aren't hiders and have more of a round body.

My pair of neon gobies where out front all the time in a 155g with 3 tangs, pair of clowns and many others. They would also clean those others from time to time since they are considered cleaning gobies.

I have a blue spot watchman. He does have a hole but he comes out to feed and will eat out of my hand if I make the effort to put it anywhere down close to him. I also second the Midas blenny. Mine is great.
