The Longbarbel Goatfish has a pale yellow or grey body marked with a wide black stripe that runs from its eye to the second dorsal fin and black spot ate the base of the tail. It also has a narrow black stripe along the base of the second dorsal fin.


Goatfish all have 2 barbels on their chin used to locate crustaceans and worms (their primary food source) in the sandy bottom. They should be fed meaty foods such as plankton, fortified brine shrimp or clam in an aquarium. Goatfish are great sandsifters and add a lot of character.
