What should I get to keep my sand bed clean?

I have a 75g tank that is now fowlr. I have a snowflake eel and a dragon wrasse so I need something that will survive them.
Maybe a sand sifting gobie...it just needs to be a larger sized one and idk what that would be. Never had one.

IME my friend has a snowflake that totally wiped out all his clean up crew.

Anyway a good fish for that task would be a bi color goatfish, I am putting one in my 75 fowlr for the same reason.

Hope I helped

Be very carful but a dragon sleeper goby, watch your eel, he might try something. I keep mine in a cridder keeper with holes in it, inside the tank for a few days, so the eel gets use to seeing him
