Other information.
With its electric blue spots this is a much sought after fish. It is known to jump, so make sure the aquarium is covered. Prefers a deep bed of sand as they like to make a burrow, make sure that this activity will not cause unstable rocks to fall. Not a great deal is known about this Jawfish, but like others it is very likely that it incubates eggs in its mouth
