It’s been back a few times that I’ve seen. It obviously lives nearby.

They can... you can live in your bedroom too but you'd hate it and eventually want to die.

Reef tank or Brackish/marine fish only (FO)?

Depends on type of sub used. Are you planning to use strictly inert materials? I would and you probably do intend to as well. The issue with any sub and more so with deeper subs is the water quality can suffer as a result of decomposing organic matter. Even with inert subs you will get fish crap settling into it affecting water quality over time.

With mudskippers you will likely have a really low bioload given they're small and territorial... This will mitigate the negative effects of a deep sub. There are benefits to deeper subs, particularly if you use an under-gravel filter... Pretty underrated. Perhaps the best (and maybe most successful) fish breeding setup i've seen in Perth uses under-gravel filters in most tanks... Cant  really be used with sand though.

If you plan on overstocking mudskippers, consider using "rocky islands" rather than a single "sandy beach" this greatly helps reduce the territorial squabbles.

Add a bit of heat and some lemon juice.... no problem at all.
