The Bicolor Goatfish, Parupeneus barberinoides, also known as the Dash and Dot, Half and Half Goatfish, and Swarthy-Headed Goatfish, features a red and white striped frontal half and a yellow and white back half of its body. The Bicolor Goatfish is really a stunning addition to any home aquarium. The Bicolor Goatfish can grow up to 10 inches over its lifetime but is imported much smaller and needs a tank of at least 50 gallons at first. It is a peaceful fish that is best housed with other non-aggressive fish. They also prefer a thick sand bed to sift through the substrate in search of food. The Bicolor Goatfish will feed on a varied carnivorous diet. 

This is a great Bicolor Goatfish who showed up healthy and happy. He was shy at first in my quarantine tank but after moving him over to the main tank he has been quite the showman. Beautiful fish to add to a reef tank.
