I bought a diamond goby for my 38 gal. tank, and I had it for about a week when I added another 20 lbs of live sand to my 20 lbs of live sand. About 5 days later I found it on the ground behind my tank. Does anyone know why it did that?

Diamond gobies are notorious jumpers. Cover the tank, or have screening on the back. Once they're acclimated and happy, they'll usually be fine. The first few weeks though, they're proned to jump, and will jump if spooked.
Sorry for your loss, been there with this fish.....
