Bicolor Goatfish have 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. Goatfish are relatively new to the hobby, but fast growing in popularity. The bicolor goatfish need plenty of swimming room. Goatfish have a high metabolism and should be fed four to five times daily.
