sick/injured sandsifter?

I noticed today that my diamond sandsifting goby has red marks on both sides of his head under his eyes. My thoughts are that he might have gotten pinched between something? He is still eating and just as active as ever. He has also been in my tank for almost two years so he is not new and there have been no new additions. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't some kind of disease i had not heard of yet. Thanks!

Well i checked on him again tonight when i got home...as far as i can tell the redness is almost completely gone. The lights were out already though so it was hard to tell with him sleeping in his hole.

Sorry for your loss. I have no idea what happened but it is weird that he was eating and still got skinny and died. I bought the same kind of goby a could of months ago, and I had him for about two weeks. I have a techtank, and it isn't made to have a lid, and he jumped out of my tank and died in my carpet. I don't know how long he was there, because I was at work, and I'm surprised my kitty didn't get him.
