    He's probably just protecting his little territory

    the fish will be ok, feed the jawfish a mix of meaty foods. Krill, mysis, enriched brine, squid, clams, sushi roe

    My Blue spot is still in the water. I was at the LFS the other day and there was a guy in there who bought the other one and he doesn't have it in his tank anymore:death:

    Mine likes to move the snails around, He does snap at the chromis when they get too close.

    The other fish will learn they can't go near his house. I wouldn't worry about it too much.
    We had a diamond goby that had a little burrow front and center in the tank. Even the trigger learned to stay away from him.
