I had both in my 28 gallon and they lived together in the same hole happily. They were added at different times, I forget which was first though sorry. How big is the orange spot??

You are talking about the diamond sandsifting goby when you say orange spot right? I know they have many common names so just asking

Yes I know that just google diamond goby and see if it's the same goby. All gobys have many common names and I just want to make sure we are talking about the same one is all. I'm about 99% sure we are

I picked up a pair today and placed in my 24g. Not sure about two different species at once, can be kind of iffy. Just make sure you have ample hiding places so they don't compete for the one hole. You could always remove one if it gets bad.
