Yellow-Headed Jawfish

OK, I am going to cave in and ask

A setup in one of my LFS' has a couple of yellow headed jawfish that I am quite taken with and I am thinking I want one of these guys for a 28NC.

I have one 28 setup with a Clown and a Tailspot Blenny and while the sandbed may be shallow, I can certainly add more..I have over 20 pounds left over. I have a lot of liverock rubble that has smaller pieces so I should have enough "home building" material for the jawfish. I do have a single firefish still in the old tank that I plan to shift into the still setting up tank once completed.

I have been reading that it might be better to introduce the jawhead as the first fish and I have another 28 that is nearly ready for inhabitants...right now it just has liverock with no sand bed as yet.

As a stock list in either or both of the tanks, I am looking at Blennies, 1 clown in each tank and Firefish. I did read that Gobies may bug a jawhead but I like those yellow clown gobies as well and was hoping to add one or two.

My corals at current consist of a hairy mushroom (hitchiker on liverock), Hammer coral, a couple of starburst polyps of various species and a zoo colony. I have some mushrooms as well that were also liverock hitchikers. I also have some brittle stars that have now made themselves known but from what I can see these aren't dangerous for the tank inhabitants. For now I will call them convict brittles as they are banded balck and white ...maybe a kinder term would be zebra brittles.

I realize my stock is limited to 4-5 fish at most per tank; I just haven't decided on the final distribution.

Any thoughts?
