Probably depends on size of fish vs size of tank & sand bed. But probably unlikely.

I had a pink spot for 5 years. Not a great sifter but he did keep the tank clean of all shells. He would grab my snails and empty shells and bring them back to his cave. And yes he came up to eat. The orange diamond eats the frozen food that makes it to the bottom. And yes they do jump. Night 3 in my tank he ended up in the overflow.

Squamosa clam. One of the few that vho lighting is ok. To the OP I would consider the pink spotted goby. They are very personable.
