i love my diamond goby but he is quite large. If you get a small one and move it to the 55 then that might be okay. You def need sand for them and rock for him to make a home under. Keep in mind that this goby will keep mostly to the bottom of the tank. They are also known to be jumpers. A clown goby is perfect for small tanks due to their size. They will sit on the rock mostly though and not swim around. The firefish goby will swim around in the middle but get they startled easily. Some sites i like to research on are:

That store is the cause of allot of problems.They knew that a yellow tang can't survive in a 12g....Most saltwater fish can't survive long term in a 12g. I don't blame you and that is why I asked if you got the tank and fish from the same place.

tangs need to stretch their fins. a 4' tank is considered small for them.
