This is my first post although I have been lurking and learning a ton the last couple months. I have the opportunity to buy some Blue Spot Jawfish at a steep discount (50% off normal price) and was wondering how safe it would be to buy two of them.
Some background: they will be housed in a 90g peaceful with possibility of a couple semi-aggressive. We've set up a couple 10g QT tanks for them with substrate and live rock for the first couple weeks. Knowing that in the wild they often dig burrows 3 ft apart, would it best to quarantine each in a separate tank? Or try to put them together at first?
We have two Pearly Jawfish that we keep in another 30g tank, and the first night we put them in they dug a burrow with two entrances but linked, so they live together -- and in total harmony
So we've had no problems housing those two together right away...
Of course I'm a bit more tentative with the Blue Spot as they are more pricey. Any thoughts most appreciated!
