watchman diamond goby

I bought a diamond goby the other day. Once I got him into my tank I realized my substrate (pool filter sand) may be to large for him to sift. He manages to sift some but mostly takes a mouth full them spits it back up. Will this be OK or should I attempt to capture and return. Which I think can not be done do to all the hideing spots in my live rock .

I'm sure he will be fine. My YWG would sift some and spit the rest out all the time before I caught him and traded him for a pj cardinal.
