Overview

The Blue Jaw Tilefish is also known as the Starck's Tilefish, Blueface Tilefish, Blue Tilefish, and Bluehead Tilefish. The head of this fish is blue, and the body a pale yellow.

A hardy fish, it needs a tank of at least 50 gallons with at least 3 inches of mixed substrate for burrowing, and a tight-fitting lid to prevent escape. It prefers to associate with members of its own species as tank mates and needs a lot of swimming room for its very active lifestyle.

The Blue Jaw Tilefish has been known to spawn successfully in an aquarium.

A diet providing a variety of marine fish, crustacean flesh, and mysis or brine shrimp will give the Blue Jaw Tilefish the nutrition it needs when fed three times per day.

Approximate Purchase Size: 4" to 6"
