Sand sifting goby

How long should I wait to get one?
The sand is new,however

The rock is established
The water is from my break down tank
The corals and my fish will be moving over tonight.

As long as he is eating other types of food you should be OK. Bullet goby is the best and then the pink spotted goby.

I'd personally wait several months. You want an established sand bed for them to sift through. Not all of them will swim into the water column for food.

Are they all suicidal by nature? You know, death by jumping.

You need to take him back,Diamond Goby will starve to death eventually even in a tank with an established sand bed.
