Sand Sifting Gobies.

I just started stocking my tank again and currently only have a flame angel, bi color angel, a maroon clown and GBTA. I really want a sand sifting goby with color and personality. Any ideas?

Be careful. Most sand sifting gobies will jump. I just lost a tiger watchman goby that I had for 8 months. He jumped. Must of got spooked while I was at work. I am now going to build a DIY lid.

Mine jumped out too. Was all crispy on the floor. I now have acrylic sheets over the top and a new watchman who is doing great.
