Gobies or Blennies?

I'm considering getting one more fish (Should be my last one for a while), and currently I have an Ocellaris Clownfish, a Coral Beauty Angelfish, and a Longnose Hawkfish in my 44gal aquarium, and was considering getting either a Goby or Blenny (Maybe two?), and was looking for one of those that gulps up a mouthful of sand and sifts it out (Looking like it's snowing). I was wondering which one would be best, and which ones wouldn't make the rocks tumble by digging out tunnels and holes underneath.

There are many blenny choices as well as goby's. I love the lawn mower blenny because it has a lot of personality and the are very interesting creature. The scooter blenny isn't really a blenny it's a dragonet and it's the same as a mandarin, they have high needs and require copepods (FYI)

Gobys are fun to watch and i'm more concerned about then spitting sand onto the LR more then digging a hole under them (not that some dont). An engineer goby, dimondback watchmant goby and dragon goby, i know for a fact filter through the gills. The neon goby will pick parisites of the fish. Just do your reaserch and check them out!


And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...
