Blue spotted jawfish?

I'm currently pondering possible options for my 180. I have a glass canopy lid already because the plan is to have a flasher wrasse harem. Since this is already in place thought I may also be able to do a couple blue spotted jawfish. I thought I read somewhere they need to be fed like 3xs a day though. Now I can't seem to find the information. Can anyone confirm or deny this. Thx.

They don't but they definitely need a deep sand bed to burrow in, you won't see them much because of that.

You probably saw this info here: Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Jawfish, Blue Dot

This also says more than one (besides a mated pair) will aggressively fight.

Be aware even the smallest spot they will jump out of, they honestly try to find a place to jump out

Maybe I'll go with just one then. Do you think they would fight much with Gobies or other types of jawfish?

Of similar shape then I'd say yeah, but if they look different and are shaped different I think you'd be okay

Today I happened to be driving through a town on my way home that has a great LFS I have used in the past. When I went in they actually had a bluespot jawfish. He was so cute I couldn't resist.

Thanks for the advise on feeding guys I'm glad I could feel confident in my ability to make this guy happy.

He's pretty much been in hiding since I put him in. I've seen him poke his head out, but not been able to get a good pics because it's so shadowy.

So he has already jumped into the overflow bin area. Any suggestions on the best way to get him out?
