make sure you have a very LIVE substrate. They sift for food. Get one if your tank has well established. Alot of the reasons they die id b/c they starve to death

These types of gobies primarily get their food from the sandbed through sifting and even if accepting prepared foods will often starve. Even in a large system with a proper refugium they will not really fair well for long. If you are partial to benthic gobies, I would look more towards watchman/shrimp goby species which do not rely on the fauna as their primary food source.
