What is the best sand sifting goby

I was looking to get a goby to mix the sand around and want to know the best kind of goby to do this.

The sleeper banded goby does a pretty good job . I used to have one and it would pick up mouths full of sand and spit it out through its gills very interesting to watch

I had a BSWG which did the same thing. Made small mounds he would rest and eat on.

diamond gobies work well too. make sure your rock work is stable though because they like to get under the rocks and make caves
