blue dot jaw


Every tank should have at least one spot of interesting color. And if you're looking for that one spot, consider the Blue Spot Jawfish which is prized by collectors for its bright colors and limited availability. Also interesting is its personality. When threatened, they will open their mouths to comical proportions in an attempt to intimidate.

Jawfish typically reside in burrows that they construct in sandy substrate. They will stuff their mouth with sand and spit it out elsewhere, slowly creating a tunnel. Utilizing the protection of these burrows, these fish will hover feeding on plankton or other small organisms, ready to dart back in at the first sign of danger. They are territorial of the area around their burrows.

Diet should include mysis and brine shrimp, as well as other small chopped frozen seafoods. They may accept high quality flake food.
