Agreed. You just have to be careful that your rocks are stable on the glass and not just on top of the sand. I had one who liked to make a pile outside of a cave, then sit in the entrance (now smaller with his sand pile) and look out at you. It was entertaining, and I even posted a YouTube video of him in action. I had him about a year and enjoyed watching him every day. I've had a few other blennies, and none have been as fun to watch as he was.

It can be a pain, but they have serious personality, and your sand will be cleaner.
Can gobies be used in freshwater tanks??

I don't know of any similar freshwater gobies. Back when I had a freshwater tank a long time ago I had a few bumblebee gobies, which are cool fish, but they don't do the same things for your sand that a watchman does, and they're really small.
