Pearly Jawfish For Sale

Scientific Name: Opistognathus aurifrons 

DescriptionThe Pearly Jawfish is a delicate burrowing species and a favorite among aquarists. Will construct an intricate burrow with reef sand and coral rubble and will fascinate you for hours. May do well in a small colony and has been noted to spawn in captivity. Jawfish are well known for frightening easily and will jump out of uncovered aquariums. This is a reef compatable fish, and a peaceful fish, but it;s considered to need an intermediate amount of care.  

Only one jawfish should be kept per tank unless a confirmed pair can be obtained. Recommeded tank size is a minimum of 24 gallons. May attack small ornamental shrimps. Jawfish require sand substrate as this is how they make their burrows.

Size: 2.5-3.5 inches and matures to 4 inches in length

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.
