new sifting goby?

My orange spotted goby died today of what we think to be old age and I'm getting a new goby soon but what other sifters are there? I've been getting orange spotted gobys for 3 years and want to try a new one that sifts like them

The best sifter in the business is the bullet goby or the banded sleeper goby. They are excellent gobies.



Now if you are looking for a moderate sifter but beautiful goby I would recommend the pink spotted goby.

Manderins dont sift. Sleeper banded goby is better known as the bullet goby.
