good sand sifter fish???

I am looking for a good sand sifter. I want a fish...not a star fish. I am interested in the jawfish. I like how they take a mouth full of sand and sift it out their gills. opinions about these please.
Also, what other type of sand sifter is fun to watch?
Thanks.

I am not sure if any of the blennies sift.. I do realize you prefer a fish, however, sand stars move *a lot* of sand, well worth it if your watar params are stable.

GL!

Peppermint Shrimp:
Crush two tbs minced mint leaves (no stems) with the juice of two limes, two tbs of sugar and a shot of light rum. Marinade eight cleaned jumbo shrimp for two hours in fridge or overnight (overnight is best). Skewer and salt shrimp. Broil or grill over medium high heat until shrimp become opaque (apx. two and a half min per side). Serve with black beans cooked with garlic, green onions, bacon and topped with a slice of lime.

is there another name for a cross hatch goby? Or could you perhaps send me a link to what he looks like?
Thanks
