Yellow Head Jawfish

Just finished acclimating my jawfish and dropped him in. I'm so excited to watch him! Already it's got me laughing! First thing was my two false perculas went after him and still keep going back to check him out. He flares his gills and opens his mouth up wide and the clowns immediately leave! He's awesome! Id like some input from anyone who can give me some tips on this guy as far as feeding or anything else that you can give me or any stories or things to look out for. In my 29 BC my critters are: two false percula clowns(mated) male and female, green BTA,15 blue leg hermits, 13 misc. snails, and many various corals. Any experience will be appreciated!

you can just drop a few flakes or whatever close to his burrow. he will make numerous burrows, but most importantly, he will try to jump out of the tank. if you grow to love this fish, get a mesh lid that covers the entire tank. people think if they leave parts open, it won't see them, but the fact is that they do see the holes and actually aim for them.
HTH, and take plenty of pics!

oh...one more thing- make sure the holes in the mesh you choose are smaller than the diameter of the fish!

Ok. Yea he is making a burrow now and extremely vigilant of both the front and back "doors" clowns stopped pestering him, mainly just making sure he doesn't go near the nem. I have the 29 biocube with hood but keep the lids open because otherwise I run high temps. I did read they jump like to jump out but figured just it would'nt aim for the door. Should I try covering that?
