Tank compatibility[edit | edit source]
- This fish is reef-safe and should be kept with similar-sized peaceful reef-dwelling fish. It is peaceful towards tank mates but is highly territorial towards its own species. Keep only one Jawfish to a tank unless you have a mated pair.
Environment specifics[edit | edit source]
- There must be a reasonable amount of substrate for this fish, either sand or small gravel, as this is a burrowing fish. A tight fitting lid is a must as this fish is also an excellent escape artist!
