Thanks! We love him! I always like fish more for personality(which he has a lot of) more than looks. I read a forum today where a guy said when he puts his hand in the tank his blue spotted turns on his back so he can scratch his belly..lol! I guess they can be very tame!

The good thing is the Jawfish always has it's burrow to burrow in for coverage if the Clownfish ever really starts to annoy the Jawfish.

The trick is going to be getting this guy to eat. I put pieces of mysis in his cave but he wants nothing to do with it. Just gets pissed at all the hermits being in there eating the mysis.

I had the same problem with jaw fish years ago. I tried a lot of different things. Shrimp pellets that sink and can be collected by sifting worked okay. But they were hard to keep fed and didn't live but a few years. My substrate wasn't fine enough for their tastes either.

Feeding Yellowhead Jawfish

The Yellowhead Jawfish feeds chiefly on zooplankton and detritus in the wild. Since it is primarily a carnivore, it needs to be provided with meaty foods in the aquarium. You can for instance give it brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, bloodworms and small pieces of clam flesh. It can be trained to accept fresh, frozen and dried food in addition to live food. To make sure it gets everything they need, it is recommended to feed it high-quality flake food (with vitamins) as well. Most specimens will start eating dry food eventually but it can take some time for the fish to realise that it is actually food.

The shy Yellowhead Jawfish doesn’t like to venture far from its burrow, especially not when newly introduced to a new aquarium, and it is therefore advisable to place the food near the opening of the burrow. When it feels safer in the aquarium it will dare to swim further and further away from its home to find food.
