The Twinspot Maori (Oxycheilinus bimaculatus) is an aggressive fish that reaches a max size of about 6 inches. It’s identified by its spade shaped tail, which comes to a long point. They will eat many prepared foods including pellets and flakes. They will also eat small invertebrates so if you place them into a reef tank you need to take that into consideration. They like a lot of rock work for hiding. A beautiful fish for a fish-only system.
