View Full Version : Yellowhead jawfish compatability help, please?

07/17/2017, 12:02 PM
In a 120, I plan on having the following and am wondering if this stocking group would okay with a pair of yellowhead jawfish? The 2 jawfish would be the first fish added with time to let them settle in

Randall's goby
Midas blenny
pair Occelaris clowns
Leapard toby puffer
Labout's wrasse
Hoeven's wrasse
Flame hawkfish
Flamback angel
Black cap basslet
Chocolate tang

Are these tank mates likely to cause too much stress on the jawfish pair or is there likely enough room in 120??

What order would you add these fish, again with jawfish pair in first?

I believe your good if you put then in first and let them settle. It's similar to the stock I had with my jawfish.

Thanks Falonut!. Anyone else have some advice on this?

The only one I would worry about is the basslet being curious with the jawfish's hangout hole.

You will have to find a way to get food to the jawfish once all the other fish are added? Some use a turkey baster.

Thanks all!

Yes Alton, I realize I will have to spot feed them near their den

Once the jawfish settles in, it should come out for the food. Mine swam right out with my other fish. Getting them comfortable is the rough part. Until they make their borrow, they have the potential of jumping. Turkey baster might be a good idea until it settles in, if there are other fish.
