    I have a six spot sand sifting goby, that guy gets through tons of sand! Best of all doesnt drop it one the coral at all. I'd also recommend them

    I was at Wild On Pets yesterday, they got a few sand sifting stars, bought one @R80 BEAUTIE.. When i put him in the DT, he immediately disappeared!! But he comes out quite often, surprisingly..

    They also had a descent size diamond goby, what a fish!!

    All sand sifting gobies do the same thing, some just drop sand on your rocks and corals which is annoying - its species dependent
