I'm sorry to hear about your loss. Blue spot jawfish are beautiful animals. I had one once, but he managed to find a way to jump out of my aquarium during the night and was dried to the carpet in the a.m.
thank you all for your simpathy, its nice to know that there are other people out there that can understand what it feels like to loose a fish(especially one with such beauty, character, and high tag price ) but we choose a hobby/life of these loses and i suppose i need to take it with as much of a stride as possible.
have any of you had a situation similar to my own. I'd like to think this was some very rare problem, and i could get another jawfish with out much worry of a second offense by my plate coral.
thank you all again, i will be posting more info about my setup soon, id like to get a camera though because i feel pictures say so much more, especially with reefs.
