Live sand and rock are natural together don't worry, I don't know what you having gobies has to do with anything really, but you need more rocks for the bb to grow on and stuff. It also looks gorgeous if you can build some nice rock forms !

Don't rely on me because I am also a newbie at sw, wait for some of the sw veterans to say their input!

Most gobies make a burrow underneath the rock so they really don't need much open sandbed. Only the sand sifting ones like diamonds need a huge sandbed with lots of life. Even then a lot of rock isn't going to hinder them.

More live rock, make sure it's "dug in" close to the bottom of the aquarium so it doesn't fall over if your new critters start moving the substrate. Get some lighter weight, crazy shaped LR for more surface area. Smell it before you buy it, don't buy funky LR!

more live rock definitely.... gobies do need areas to sand sift although if you were to tower up the live rock then theres still plenty of room for the gobies to sift.. but then again you shouldn't rely on gobies just eating up debris in the sand. you should train em to eat frozen food.... like brine, Mysis shrimp etc
