are you sure your not thinking of a harlequin shrimp?
def. need cool waters for the catalina goby, and i think i would also avoid all blennies and starfish. i dont think either will find enough food in this size tank and slowly starve out.
your going to want a heater and/or chiller ( depending your location ) to keep your temps steady. temps usually drop at night and in only say 8 gallons of water ( live rock displaces water ) thats going to be a large temp swing on a daily basis.
