bullet goby question

These websites sell bullet gobies all look totally different in appearance live aquaria states they should have a loose coral rubble substrate. Saltwaterfish.com states sand. Also it says minimum 30 gal tank but I read they get lonely and work best in pairs.. I think 2 may be too much for a 46 gallon. If I purchase 1 will it be a sad, depressed, aggresive fish??? Also the stated maximium size I am unsure about is 6" about right. I would think a 6" bullet goby may be too large for a 46 gallon
any thoughts?????

They should have a sand substrate. A crushed coral substrate will cut them if sharp edges go through them. They turn darker in the tank. Here is a pic of him when I got him and the Fantasy reef article is after several yrs. Read the FR article.

All three sites may be calling different fish by the same name. You need to research on the scientific name. Even then "Genus Amblygobius, the Hover Gobies:..There are thirteen species in this genus."
