The Bicolour Goatfish has a burgundy anterior and yellow posterior divided by a white band. There is a black dot on the posterior portion and a pair of white stripes on the anterior portion giving it the name Dash and Dot Goatfish. Both head and tail also have blue markings.
If you’re looking for the unexpected, consider the Bicolour Goatfish. These hardy characters introduce energetic activity to the aquarium bottom as they actively patrol the sand bed to satisfy their appetites, making them a unique addition to your aquarium. An established aquarium with plenty of swimming room is recommended, and it needs non-aggressive tank mates.
The bottom of the aquarium should have a moderate substrate layer so the Bicolor Goatfish may use its barbels to sift through the substrate in search of food invertebrates, small crustaceans, worms, they will leave corals alone. Because it eats the invertebrates, the nitrogen load capacity of the sand will be reduced and it will be well-oxygenated due to the sifting. Goatfish prefer to be housed with less aggressive tank mates.
The diet should consist of fresh or frozen meaty preparations. Goatfish have a high metabolism and should be fed often during the day.
