Details

The Goldsaddle Goatfish (Parupeneus cyclostomus) is also sometimes reffered to as the "Yellow Goatfish" because of its bright yellow body, one of several color phases this species may exhibit. Like all goatfish, it possesses 2 barbels which it uses to sift small crustaceans out of the sand bed.

 

Goatfish are generally peaceful fish that will get along well with all community fish. They need to be provided with large open areas in the tank so that they can forage through the substrate looking for food; they will generally accept most frozen meaty foods.
