Hi I posted in fish discussion and have found new information regarding my blue spotted jawfish. Can I get help identifying what he or she might have?

Tough to see anything in the photo except that it should be in a burrow and it’s not- always a bad sign with these. What a the history of the fish, water quality, etc?
To be honest, these are on my “fish to avoid” list - I used to do pretty well with them, but in recent years, they’ve been much more problematic. They really don’t handle high temperatures very well.

Water quality is good. He's been fighting with my Pistol Shrimp
I’d move the pistol to a compartment so the jawfish can make a secure burrow. They really stress out in the open like that.
