The Bluejaw Tile Goby, , Hoplolatilus starcki, is also known as the Bluejaw Tilefish, Starck's Goby, Blue Tilefish, or Bluehead Tilefish. Its body features a three distinct colors: a blue head, a silver central region, and a yellow tail. The Bluejaw Tile Goby  requires a thick sandy substrate in which they will burrow as well as  plenty of swimming space. They are best kept with members of its own species and away from large aggressive fishes. The Bluejaw Tile Goby feeds primarily on a carnivorous diet of prepared meaty foods. 

I bought this Bluejaw Tile Goby here and to show you how hardy this guy is, he was the most active of 5 fish I had delivered when outside temp in MN was 21 degree out and bag water was at 68 degrees. All survived after 2 1/2 hr slow drip acclimation. He is a colorful little guy to watch darting around the tank. He is constantly on the move searching for food or detritus on the bottom as well as on reef rock. Likes to dart in and out of rock. He is getting much better at snagging Mysis shrimp I drop in before the other 6 fish hog it all, especially my Hamlet Indigo who gobbles everything that moves. A joy to watch.
