Does the fish seek them out or simpley remove them from it's territory?

Could the the goby is simpley moving the "intruders" from it's burrow area. It is not normal for them to attack inverts.

Cheers
Steve

Sounds like all it's doing is removing intruders. Nothing to be concerned about, albeit entertaining.

Cheers
Steve

sounds like he's just holding his ground. i have never witnessed my watchman attacking or eating anything, except his frozen food and usual sand sifting.
good luck
