Jawfish - Black Cap

Recommended Posts

lg_81986_Black_Cap_Jawfish.jpg

The head and body of the Black Cap Jawfish, are green with faint orange stripes. It has a black spot on the dorsal fin, as well as a black cap on top of the head. 

It should reside in a 30 gallon or larger aquarium with a tight-fitting lid to prevent it from jumping out, and at least 3 inches of mixed substrate for burrowing. It poses a possible threat to small shrimp.

The Black Cap Jawfish is hardy and will spawn successfully in an aquarium.

The diet should consist of a variety of marine fish, crustacean flesh, and mysis shrimp. It prefers to be fed at least three times per day.

I really like the blue spot too, but they are a cooler water fish which is why you hear so many stories of them not lasting long.  This is one of those fish that should be sold with a huge sign saying "not for a reef tank"
