I have a twospot goby and a sand sifting star. Every here warns against them but so far so good. Have had the goby about a month and a half and the star for probably 6-7 months.

Thank you everyone, leaning towards some super Tongan Nassarius Snail and maybe a goby

The only thing I would think about is that sand sifting stars and gobies sift the sand, but for the beneficial creatures that live there. If you want a sandbed to help you water quality, I would recommend nassarius snails.

I would say yes. Firefish goby's are generally peaceful except there own kind they can be semi aggressive.

I've also read that they do better in pairs specifically mated pairs.

Dragon Goby! (aka banded goby) They look pretty awesome too. Mine is friendly, swims out in the open and is an absolute machine when it comes to sifting sand.
