Watchman Goby eats everything in sight

Does anyone have a problem with their Watchman Goby eating their cleanup crew? I just added $200.00 worth of crew this morning to watch Mr. Goby steal a nassarius(which was to big to swallow) then proceed to eat a blue leg and grab another one for later. He didn't adjust for the fact that the one he put in storage walked out of his burrow a minit later. It's kind of hard to watch two bills become an early morning snack for my fish.

I have never seen my gobies do this. I know they go crazy when I feed my blender mush but aside from that and sifting the sand they sont seem to bother other things.

I have an orange spotted goby. He will sift through the sand and dig holes, but he doesn't eat anyone else. One thing he will do is move a snail or a hermit if they are in his hole when he wants to go in. But he spits them back out right away. It is actually kind of funny.
-50gal tank
-20gal tall sump / refugium.
-About 15-20 lbs of live rock
-60 lbs (3") of sand.
-2x65w power compact lights
-2x18w power compact in the refug.
-bak pak 2R
-3 LARGE feather dusters all differebt colors
-orange spotted goby
-fire fish
-12 or so hermits
-50-60 nassairus snails
-about 12 turno snails
-emrald crab
