I really would want to know how big your tank is and what you have stocked already. How deep is your sand bed and also are your rocks very stable? Watchman need a deeper sand bed because they like to burrow. Myself if I had the right sand bed I would go for the watchman.

Your tank is large enough for either goby and both seem to be pretty easy to care for. It sounds like you really like the engineer and once you do a little more research I am pretty sure that is the one you will end up with. They change colors as they mature.
