The Blue Dot Jawfish, also known as the Bluespotted Jawfish, is a favorite among saltwater aquarists. This lively fish boasts bright, flamboyant coloration in contrasting shades of yellows, oranges, and metallic blue spots decorating the entire length of the head and body.
The ideal setup for the Blue Dot Jawfish is an established 30 gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of live rock and a layer of fine to moderately sized sand substrate to sift through and only one Blue Dot Jawfish (or a mated pair) should be kept in an aquarium, as it will be aggressive towards it’s own species.
Members of the jawfish family will dig into the substrate, creating a burrow as for themselves to live in. Their head will pop out of their hole looking for food and predators. Upon seeing food they will float out of their hole in a standing motion to grab the food and then rush back into their home. Often times this fish will use a shell as it's door to the hole. They will place this cover on the den at night time and remove it during the day.
The diet of the Blue Dot Jawfish should consist of a variety of marine fish, crustacean flesh, and mysid shrimp. It should be fed at least three times per day.
