I like the orange/red diamond gobys/ They clean up the sand really good. I I am thinking about getting one as well just to stir up the sand because I have been noticing a lot of diamtoms recently. The only thing I am worried about is that I have my rocks stacked not glued together so I would have for him to bury. I have 2 clowns and a yellow tang too in my 55. I just added a foxface on friday.

I don't have a lot of rock yet and I'm not planning on glueing when I get more but I think it will be ok, think those hints will keep the sand pretty clean?

I would assume so, It's another fish to add as well but I heard some of the sand gobys sift sand a little higher as they swim across the tank. I was also thinking about getting a conch snail. They keep the sand bed very clean and run at most $15

My favorite Goby so far has been the pink/purple spotted Watchman Goby. They're absolutely beautiful, and mine keeps my sand turned over very well.
