Your live fish may not match the image shown due to natural variations in each species. Each companion animal is different in shape, color, and personality.
Also known as a Spotted Boxfish, Gugu (Fiji), or Moa (Hawaii).
The comical appearance of the Black Boxfish makes this an aquarium favorite. Although the fish is very hardy, pristine water quality is a must, as high levels of stress can cause the fish to release a potent toxin, called ostracitoxin, which can destroy an entire tank. Does best if housed with passive tankmates, but not with Cleaner Wrasses as they will constantly pester the Boxfish in an attempt to clean it. The Boxfish will be extremely stressed from this and will more than likely release its toxins. Although the Black Boxfish can be kept in a reef tank, tube worms will be picked and chewed on.
