depends, if you get a clown goby and a sleeper or watchman, i don't see why they would show aggression, they have completly different looks

I would really look into getting a diamond goby instead of the watchman. The make burrows too and are hilarious. They are very smart and mine gets cleaned by my cleaner shrimp. He cleans inside his mouth. Diamond gobies will clean all the sand in the tank. Mine has many burrows and I love it. They are not picky eaters and are very colorful. The only thing is they jump, so if u have a lid. I would look into getting a diamond goby instead of the watchman.

I heard diamond gobies should only be in mature tanks, stories of them starving cause there wasnt enough food in their sifting

It's just sometimes they won't eat the prepared, and all they get for food is from sifting. if yours is eating then, nice! I just didnt wanna risk it yet.

How long are we talking? I know it depends on a lot but any guidance? That is a must for me. I have to have a diamond goby.
