I've never read that they are. On liveaquaria it says they live in 72-78 F temp.

I read an article from tfh magazine stating that they are coldwater fish and live in waters near Alaska and California.

The ones they're selling are from Mexico apparently. Maybe they can live in both types of environment.

Sand sifting gobies are cool, tangs are nice as well, and I love Catalina gobies and pajama cardinals

That's a beautiful fish, but I'm pretty sure it's not reef safe and would outgrow a 55.

One of my favorite reef fish is the indigo dottyback. It is a hybrid between the orchid and striped dottyback, giving it a light blue hue with a stripe down the side. Beautiful fish.

I have one of these as well. I lucked out because mine is the deepest indigo I've ever seen. Very beautiful.

And Bluespot Jawfish are not cold water by any means.

From what I've seen with my indigo, it gets bluer with either age or health.

As for the blue spot jawfish, they are a cooler water fish not cold. My reef runs at around 79-80 degrees where the blue spot likes 72-78. Minor difference, but would take some adjusting to warmer conditions. The Catalina goby is similar if I remember correctly.
