    Nice fish, I was so tempted to buy one of those yellow boxfish a couple of weeks ago, I think I walked in and out of the shop about 6 times trying to convince myself, I even took a photo of it. The shop owner must have thought I had escaped from the funny farm, lol. But in the end I decided against it. Such a cool little fish though. What is yours eating?

    They apparently grow up to 45cm and I was looking for fish for my nano, but he was so small and cute. I was really tempted.

    also have toxic skins, dont swim that well in reef tank currents and can nip at other fish and corals, although personally i loved the one i had, one of the best fish Ive ever kept:)

    Also release toxins if they feel threatened. ..wwhivh is deadly for all other fish. So you don't want to scare this little guy... toxins can kill all your fish in 10min.

    Pity this is not reefsafe. I love watching them while diving/snorkeling.

    :lol: They are very nice fish. And they look like "saltwater"fish, unlike other saltwater fish looking like bathtub fish
