I will be mostly fishing in estuaries in Kerala. Is tank goby fish (live) any good as bait?

Don't see why not, but gobies have great camouflage, I would go with the likes of mullet which would be more conspicuous. Some of my friends had actually used Black Mollies in an estuary with great success recently, they were targeting small fish though..

Any fish alive should be good. Personally I would prefer the shinier fish as suggested by Bobby just so they would reflect light.
But fish rely on other senses as well apart from vision so Gobies should work.

They are good algae eaters so the should help out with your algae in your marine aquarium. I used to keep corals and marine fish, so I know a thing or two about Marine aquariums...
