New blue spot jaw fish

Recommended Posts

I always wanted one and still would like one, but am afraid in my tank it would make its burrow in the back where I never would see it.

I've heard of people burying PVC in the sand hoping that it takes refuge there.

 

VERY COOL fish!!!

don't be surprised if he moves to a new spot within 48 hours and keep a top on the tank cause they think they can fly!!!!

double that I've had them jump through egg crate if theres a hole they can fit through they will find it.

That really sucks, and that still an understatement.

 

SWF has one I was eye-balling, I just fear that he takes up residency in a spot I cant see him.

 

Sorry for your loss that blows

 

 

If you get another dont do the eggcrate you'll be better getting the poly mesh from Bulk Reef or this guy;

Someone locally should carry this stuff, it makes for a cool looking top and all fish can jump-some are just more prone-its worth the 20.00 (all the hardware) investment-glad I have it, I have heard plenty of "splashes" that could have been potential carpet surfers
