This species lives in coastal waters and isusually found in coral reefs or sandy or muddy bottoms close to the reef.

The fish has a pale brown-grey colouring in the upper half of the body, the underside is silver-white, just below the back, and slightly above the lateral line there is an elongated black spot.

Scolopsis bimaculata occurs in its habitats solitary or in pairs.
