Pink spotted goby

I'm interested in the pink spotted goby for our 65-gal FOWLR tank. Is it the same as the orange spotted goby shown on LiveAquaria.com?

Concern with most gobies is that LiveAquaria says they need to be fed 2x/day. I worry about bio-load.

I have a pink spotted goby and I only feed every other day. On the off days he does some sifting and sharing some of the seaweed selects scraps with the tangs. He is my favorite fish and seems to have a great personality.

I do the same with feeding every other day. Its easily one of my favorite fish and my maroon clown seems to like him too, since they always hang out side by side.
