So I've done some reading on the jawfish but id rather hear personal experiences.

Do these guys make more than one burrow? Will it stay in the same spot at all times?

So far mine is in one spot, but man, does he have a personality! Haha already love him.

he's so awesome, pretty "out n about" of his burrow for being in the tank less than 24hrs. I'm hoping he'll come out more often, but he gets startled real easily and goes back into his burrow.
