I have a goby that has a yellow head with a long white body. Don't know his name but I've seen them in every fish store I've been in.

He spends his day grabbing sand off the bottom and sifting through his gills, needless to say the sand is spotless.

Some if my rock looks like its been snowed on due to him swimming around while sifting sand. Atttached is a picture of him.

Thats a nice tank you got there. That looks to be good goby for me. The only goby my lfs has are orange spotted gobies at about 6 inches each, to big for me.

most definitely.
There bio is also correct. Likes to dig. Once the lights go out he's gone into his hole.

I'm thinking of getting the Sleeper Gold Head Goby - Valenciennea strigata. However liveaquaria lists its care level at difficult and Marine depot lists it as low maintainence, which one is true. If the Gold head is difficult, then i'll get the orange spotted goby.
