    They are both blennies, in a small tank it probably wouldn't be advisable to keep more than 1 blenny as they are territorial and would fight.

    If you looking for fish that chill and dig in the substrate you may be thinking of a prawn goby or Randalls goby (there are more such gobies, these 2 just spring to mind). They similar to a blennie. From a different family but very similar. Mind you there are different types of gobies as well. I got a prawn goby and a fire goby. Prawn goby hovers round the bottom and the fire goby swims in open water. Never kept a blennie but I have heard they are very terrotorial and if you kept 2 together would probably have a battle royale on your hands. Not sure of blennie and goby compatibility but I would guess not a very good idea. If you got some nice substrate these fish are a must have in my opinion. They are so cool and different to open water fish.
