Any "Hector`s Goby" Owners out there?

Whats up?
I have a Hector`s Goby, and except for an injury which I described in another post (rapidly healing) , it`s doing great. Its put on body mass and is very active in my tank.

I`m just curious----- online Fish-Sellers describe it as "Easy" and that it will eat a variety of prepared foods. Well.........Ive never seen mine go for a single thing that isnt part of it`s environment.
It sifts sand all day. It also picks at the live rock and munches on hair algae.
Do any of you have a Hector`s that eats prepared foods? Is mine just avoiding it because fresh stuff is plentiful?

I don't have any experience with those. From your description, it sounds like he may be getting all he needs from the sand and algae. Have you tried soaking the food in garlic extreme?
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
