The Bicolour Goatfish is native to the western Pacific. It has a burgundy-coloured front end and a yellow back end, with a dark spot on the latter. Goatfish are so-called because of the two barbels like goat horns from the chin, used to feel for food in the sand while "walking" about the seabed on their pelvic fins. Its barbels are also bi-coloured red and yellow. It can reach 25cm long.
