Tiger Jawfish

Tiger Jawfish

The Tiger Jawfish, also known as the Blackcap Jawfish, Mustache Jawfish and Blackhead Jawfish, spends the majority of its time in and around its burrow which serves as its home. They require a sandy or sandy rubble substrate in order to build their burrow. These fish also like to people watch, despite being a little jumpy. A tight fitting lid is highly recommended for the Tiger Jawfish to prevent them from jumping out of the aquarium.
