Dot and Dash Goatfish

Dot and Dash Goatfish

Also known as the Dash Dot Goatfish, Iosi (Fiji), Tusia (Samoa), or Rouget barberin (Maldives).

Similar to land-based goats, the Dot and Dash Goatfish can travel in groups, and forages through the bottom and other soft matter to find food. This fish uses its long barbels to sift through sand for food, using the "whiskers" as feelers. With its relatively large adult size, this Goatfish needs plenty of space to swim, as well as an abundance of hiding places.
