Which one would be more beginner friendly since I'm pretty new to saltwater?

I would honestly say the neon goby.

I think the firefish would be easier since you can't get the neon goby. You should check with other people though.

Firefish are hardy but can be skittish so I would advise adding a lid to your tank. Neon gobies have been bred and raised in captivity and will eat most prepared foods. The clown gob is hardy too so it's your choice.

My teacher kept one alive with a bunch of 6 graders caring for it so it has to be pretty hardy.

I agree but from what I heard, they aren't common at most stores

Yes this is true with shrimp gobys, firefish, and others but clown gobys look nothing like firefish, i had a clown goby in my 37g and my bonded pair of purple fire fish never even looked at it. They should be fine together.
