I need a good burrowing goby

like the title says, im looking for a goby that burrows as my first addition to my 34 long. i have a YWM in my biocube so i do not want another but id like one that acts just like it. I really love the two spot's. do they burrow? Any other suggestions would be great, nothing that gets larger than 4-5 inches

Anything that burrows like a YWG, and looks like a YWG, will fight to death with the YWG. These fish are generally peaceful, but not with fish that have the same colors/shapes/sizes as them, especially since 34G isn't all that large. They would most likely fight over burrows and territories as well. If you already have one sand burrower in that 34G i would suggest skipping getting another.
