No luck with this species
I've never had luck with this species. One arrived dead and the other disapeared within 2 days of putting in the tank. Might be better in a nano tank.

Pearly Jaws Rock!
One of the most beautiful reef fish in the ocean, IMO. They always make me think of angels with their diaphanous fins and coloration. Their personalities are da bomb, too.

Pearly Jawfish Review
Pearly, or yellow-headed jawfish, are great reef tank fish! They tend to be people watchers, and will make a burrow in the sand bed near the front of the tank or corners so they can see you! Easy to feed, and do well in groups. They "fish pile" on each other in groups : )
