The Chinstrap Jawfish also known as the Green Sided Jawfish (Opistognathus sp) is a newly discovered species of Jawfish from the Indo Pacific. With its unique and alluring snowflake-like pattern, the Chinstrap Jawfish stands out from the crowd. This yet undescribed species bears a striking resemblance to the Opistognathus scops, but its larger, coarser mottling and distinct ocellus at the front of the dorsal fin make it truly one-of-a-kind. Its ocular band extending down to the chin adds to its charm, giving rise to its common name Chinstrap Jawfish. These jawfish should be kept in a 30-gallon or larger aquarium, complete with a generous supply of mixed substrate for burrowing. Decorate their den with broken coral branches, clam or snail shells, and assorted rubble to fulfill their natural instincts. They are reef safe and will need a diet of brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, and other meaty saltwater foods as they are primarily carnivores fed 2-3 times a day.
