The Red Jawfish should be kept in a 30-gallon or larger aquarium with docile tank mates and at least 3 to 4 inches of mixed substrate for burrowing. A supply of broken coral branches, clam or snail shells, and assorted pieces of rubble will be eagerly welcomed as essential den-building materials.
Jawfish display territorial aggression towards others of their own species, so only one specimen, or a mated pair, should be kept per tank. Multiple Red Jawfish may be kept if they are housed together in a large enough tank where each Red Jawfish can comfortably establish their own territories. Similar to other Jawfish, an aquarium with a tight-fitting lid is required to prevent potential escape.
The diet of the Red Jawfish should consist of a variety of marine fish, crustacean flesh, and mysis shrimp.
