the fish will be ok, feed the jawfish a mix of meaty foods. Krill, mysis, enriched brine, squid, clams, sushi roe
My Blue spot is still in the water. I was at the LFS the other day and there was a guy in there who bought the other one and he doesn't have it in his tank anymore:death:

Mine likes to move the snails around, He does snap at the chromis when they get too close.

The other fish will learn they can't go near his house. I wouldn't worry about it too much.
We had a diamond goby that had a little burrow front and center in the tank. Even the trigger learned to stay away from him.
Duskys are all show and no bite.:D Even if he does bite one of your other fish,its not going to hurt them.
