120 Gallon Tank Blenny Stocking

I'm looking at adding a couple of algae eating and sand sifting gobies/blennies into my 125 once it has reached full marine. It would have to be something at least 4'' to stay off the menu and soft coral safe. Suggestions?

I adore ALL blennies and gobies!!!!!!! I did learn one rule way back......told to me by a Saltwater specialist in my area.....lol......blennys -bad....gobys -good.....meaning that u hve to be careful having more than one type of blenny.....and most differant gobys get along......one of my favorite blennys is the snowflake blenny...I have one of those and I also have a bi-color in my 72 reef....the tank is big enough so they don't really bother each other.......by accident I have 3 watchmen gobies...2 have kind of paired off and one is a loner..... once in a while they have territory issues but pretty much stay on their own sides of the tank...I also have a diamond spot goby......very pretty.....the same goes for him.....I just love the way they all move around...not really swim... but hop......and are able to kind of turn their heads

Which ones are good for keeping a 125 sand clean? Which ones are good for algae eating?

The snowflake,lawnmower blennys love algae......they are "reef safe"....be careful with any of the sand sifters.....lol...Ive had them continually drop sand on coral and killed the corals....no more of them for me......I even had one in with my SHs....he was able to even make my smaller fake corals in there move and fall...some of the blennys go about 3-5 inches depending

Okay final list comes down to:

20x Nassarius snails

Ember blenny or Starry blenny
And
Sleeper banded goby or Sleeper gold head goby or Tiger watchman goby

I would like to get both blennies if possible and I'm leaning towards the banded sleeper. What do you guys think?
