overview

The Black spot or Bicolor Goatfish, is also referred to as the Dash and Dot, Half and Half Goatfish, and Swarthy-headed Goatfish. It 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.

A 50 gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of swimming room is recommended, and it needs non-aggressive tank mates. The bottom of the tank should be sandy so it may use its barbels to sift through the substrate in search of food (invertebrates, small crustaceans, worms). 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.

The diet should consist of fresh or frozen meaty preparations. If the aquarium is fish-only, it will keep the bottom of the tank immaculate by eating fallen meaty foods. It should be fed 3-4 times daily.

Approximate Purchase Size: Small: 1" to 1-1/2"; Medium: 1-1/2" to 2"; Large: 2" to 4"
