Twin spot and yasha compatible?

I have a 70 gallon sandy bottom rock and macro algae tank. I have a pair of yasha gobies and would like to add a small sand sifter. The twin spot goby seems to be the smallest of the sand sifters. Any chance they will get along? Fight? Keep in mind both will be in mated pairs. So it is actually 4 fish.

And to add to the drama will be a pair of tangaroa gobies though those supposedly are super peaceful.

Not sure if they are compatible. I do know the twin spots are hard to maintain in a aquarium though

yeah I've read mixed reviews. Some saying it is hard others saying they train easy onto pellets if the tank is turned off.

I always turn the tank off for 30 minutes or more for my mandarins and seahorses to eat.

I don't know if I'm going to risk it or not. The twin spots are friendly enough they share their tube sometimes with other gobies. same with tangaroa's. Of course they will all have their own pre-built tubes in the tank but I really don't like it when things don't work out so hopefully someone who's done it will chime in before Monday. I have to final my order on Monday and they have a pair of twins.
