Ordered it on Friday morning and it was shipped out on Tuesday and arrived on Wednesday. Looks like a small operation and can't depend on the exact ship date like big online store like DFS. It was shipped in a small box with newspaper as insulation. The jawfish was packed differently. They were put into a section of 1.5"D x 4" tube with some screen on both end, and then were put into a plastic bag with water and air like normal. They owner said 50% of them would DOA if it's shipped with just the normal way.
Put them into the tank and they went into hiding immediately. It's been 2 days now. Still haven't seen them. I'm getting a little worry since I've heard that I need to spot feed them. Lucky I didn't get those $80-$100 variety ones. I would be even more worry. lol
Two day hiding isn't bad.
4 days. One finally peek out once in awhile when I watch it via the webcam. Spraying sand out at times. If I walk by, he stay back inside. I can only watch him from the webcam.
Still don't see the other one though, unless they both share the same hole.
Sometimes fish will share the same hole. I have 2 Firefish that take turns with their little hole.
Your fish take turns with the hole:shock:
I was thinking about getting a jawfish as well.
Just watch out. Jawfish are jumpers!
There is this blue spotted jawfish at my lfs for 150. haha
can you have more than one jawfish in a 35?
I had one of those I got from reefhotspot.com for around $80. It jumped out during a water change and then I squished him when I returned with the bucket. He was a beautiful fish. Short lived though.
I think they would probably be aggressive towards one another.
They are usually cost about $100 or so. You can find them for about $60-$80 if you look around.
If you get a blue spot jawfish,you better make sure there are NO holes what so ever in the top.Those things can jump through the neck of a coke bottle from 10ft (not really but you get what I'm saying).
So get a glass top then eh.
glass top get your tank very hot. Maybe good for Winter.
hmm, what should I do then?
what about a fine mesh screen?
like a metal screen?
