fish ID

hey! so i was curious about a certain fish. I always see them at my lfs and they are always shoving their faces into the sand and then siftting it out through their gills or something but I am always so ammused by it.

Is it a goby? do all gobies do that? or just a certain kind? thanks!

diamond sandsifter goby? They are white with orange spots though.

Look here Gobies for Sale: Goby Fish Species Including Shrimp Gobies

and here Saltwater Fish Goby, Saltwater Fish Blenny, Saltwater Fish Jaw Fish
to see if you can find it
