They should keep your goby safe.
They will, with time, get clogged with algae and detritus so be sure to clean them as needed.
+1 on the mesh that Tom suggested. It comes in various mesh sizes too. (Usually by color) Get the largest size that is smaller than your goby and it won't clog as often. I use the same mesh around my stand pipes in my breeding tanks and it works great. As the juveniles grow I increase the mesh size and the flow.
FWIW, the mesh is used for needlepoint type projects and you can find it in that area of Michael's or most fabric stores.
