Yeah, i think $45 is most I've paid for any fish, ever. Lol. I'm too afraid it's gonna die, even tho that hasn't actually been a problem. I have bangaii in my 55, and love them, but I kinda wanted to do some different fish from what I have in the 55.

My daughter really want a yellow head jawfish. Anyone have any experience with those? Are they fairly easy to keep or die quickly?

Yeah, I think I remember him saying recently that his blue spot jawfish died. That doesn't bode well for me that his died and his tank is perfect!! Lol

How bout a Yasha Hase goby and pistol shrimp
pair? I was showing my fiancťe the yellow watchman goby/ pistol pair at the LFS that had ordered them in for me, and she didn't like the watchman...!? I know right? Anyways, LFS recommended the Yasha Hase because they have the same relationship to the pistol, and of course she loves the Yasha. Just my 2 cents

there's many factors to consider

fish may have been sick before he got it

major stress from shipping in mail (major temp changes or even just being tossed like a rag doll)

fish are very fragile and need to be handled that way

fish may not have been fed at warehouse for days causing starvation sometimes they appear to be fine when you get them and wham its too late ,it may eat after you get it but the damage was already done.

no fish is bullet proof even I lost a few

even if you acclimate there s still a chance there is a water parameter difference salinity,temp,ph,nitrate,nitrite ect

there's many more factors than I mentioned but I think you get the idea

don't get discouraged about a fish because someone lost one it happens

even the most experienced fish keepers loose a fish now and then

it's not rocket science and things just happen

hope you understand what I'm trying to say
