Breeding yellowheaded Jawfish-Seascope article

So your only source of filtration until metamorphosis is the phytoplankton absorbing any nutrients, so therefore there should be a light on the larvae tank I'm assuming. Hopefully not too much poop in the ground

Hey Ming,
Glad to see you joined. What's the current status of your breeding pair of jaws?

I get them to lay eggs, the male holds the eggs and eventually develop the eyes. Then one day they're all gone. I've been trying to keep track of how long it takes for the eggs to develop so I know which day I have to stay up to catch the larvae, but no luck so far.
Heres a pic of the male

And they dug to the bottom glass so I took a pic of the eggs when he put it down to feed

I would really like a copy of this article as they will be the third fish I'm going to attempt breeding (after Bangaii and a clown).

Whoever has it in PDF send me a PM and I can give you my email.

I just got a pair of YHJ's. I am looking for information on how they interact with each other as a pair. For now, they were only together for a few hours and then separated. One stayed in the burrow and the other went on various trips to the sump and once to the floor while preventing a third trip down there. That one has spent a couple of days trying to get down the drains and is now creating a burrow separate from the other although it IS on the same side of the tank where the other decided to move to.

One fish has a spot on the chin, the other does too, but it is extremely faint.
