Description
This entertaining burrower will give many hours of entertainment as it builds itís burrow from various pieces of rock, rubble and sand. May even choose a flat rock as a roof and build on to that.

Jawfish are well known for frightening easily and will jump out of uncovered aquariums. Only one jawfish should be kept per tank unless a confirmed pair can be obtained. May attack small ornamental shrimps. Jawfish require sand substrate as this is how they make their burrows.
Diet
Feed a varied diet consisting of chopped meaty marine foods. These foods include krill, raw table shrimp, squid, clam and mussel. It is also a good idea to occasionally supplement with some type of herbivore diet.
