Conversely, anything that is too small might mysteriously disappear from the tank (jaws have very big mouths).

Everyone here has given some great advise, and the only thing I can add is that jawfish have no respect for neighboring corals ... so when they are excavating and keeping up their tunnels, they will spit sand on anything. When I had my jawfish (may he rest in peace in the great ocean in the sky), he liked dumping sand on zoa's and a neighboring toadstool.
Definitely true. Which is why I call it my "jawfish tank" instead of my "nano-reef tank." You have to be willing to make the jawfish the focus of the tank. Otherwise you may find owning one somewhat frustrating.
Hahah, yeah, I would definately cement the coral onto some LR at LEAST 2-3" above your sandbed...they have a habit of making 4" piles in some areas and digging bare bottom in others
Best of luck!
would it be ok if i had 2 inches of sand and gave it some crushed coral or something to build with in one spot?
oh and its going in a AP 12 with closed top so that wont be an issue
oh and what will i have to feed it? or how sohould i?
i think im gona move most of my sand to the center of the tank and have some liverock "holding" it in this are and have a pile of crushed coral and rubble somewhere, this weekend i hope to get mine, ill take the damsel back that i have in the tank now

i think i might have changed my mind on getting a jaw fish, since i wouldnt be able to keep anything else in the tnak really
okay my LFS has a dusky jawfish its about 1.5-2 inches long, its priced at $20, does this sound like a good price?
ill be getting it this weekend if all goes well
