    I think it's a 50/50 chance. Some gobies are territorial and aggressive to other fish that look like them, and some are not. Sorry. :(

    I agree. There is a chance of aggression. Hopefully not.

    I would say in a 90gal you have nothing to worry about once a jawfish has established its burrow it wont move around very far from it and will spend most of its time perfecting it, jawfish need a good 3-5 inches of coarse sand and rubble to build thier burrow or make sure your live rock cant not move around if they dig out under it.
