  • Description

    Please note that the product information displayed is provided by manufacturers, suppliers and other third parties and is not independently verified by Petco.

    Jawfish are an excellent addition to reef aquariums as they have a small adult size and a lot of personality. The Yellowhead Jawfish is an extremely unique fish, due to their beautiful colorations and interesting behavior. They are known for burrowing and being "mouth brooders," where the males will hold the eggs in his mouth. The Jawfish has a narrow, long body that allows them to back into their burrow and use their rather large eyes to protect their territory and be on the lookout for food. When planning a display with this jawfish, be sure to use a few inches of mixed grain sand, as this will give them enough depth to burrow, and a more secure final structure. This little guy has an adult size of 3" and are a great addition to smaller aquariums. They have an orangish yellow colored body and littered with blue spots. The Blue Dot Jawfish are found in the Eastern Central Pacific inhabiting burrows of crushed coral or sand up to 12 meters deep.

  • ACCLIMATION: Avoid exposing new aquatic life to bright lights after opening the box. Turn off aquarium lights prior to floating aquatic life. Allow the sealed bag with your new fish to float in your aquarium for at least 15 minutes (but no longer than one hour) to ensure the water in the bag matches the temperature in your aquarium. A bacteria booster addition can assist with the addition of new aquatic life. Petco offers free water testing in store to determine if your water is safe for the addition of new aquatic life. DIET: A well-balanced diet consists of a variety of flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods, depending on the species. FEEDING: Feed sparingly and no more than fish can eat in 1-2 minutes. Overfeeding can quickly foul the water, especially in smaller aquariums.
