    I noticed last night that my yellow watchman goby's jaw looks to be broken right in the front. I think he messed it up from digging a new hole under some LR. Do you think it will heal?

    Hiker I hope you're not fighting fish illegally in that fish ring again. :x: :mrgreen:

    I bet he'll be just fine.

    keep an eye on him, and make sure he is eating. If he did break his jaw he might not make it, Ive seen this go both ways. :x: I would have to guess that he didn't break it while digging, he most likely jumped and hit his face on your tank top.

    He's eating just fine. Actually he's been a bit more aggressive with his eating.

    As of this morning it finally looking like its starting to heal. Where it was red and fleshy looking it is now looking like a whiteish/yellowish skin growing back. I think he'll be just fine!
