Ostracion Boxfish are slow swimmers and should be added to large well established aquariums with plenty of room to swim. Plenty of rock work with ample supply of macro and micro algae should be provided for grazing. Boxfish may release toxins if threatened, picked on or not healthy they should be removed immediately. Activated carbon will remove the toxins. A diet of meaty and algae-based foods should be provided. Boxfish may be seen blowing sand looking for small invertebrates to consume. Avoid floating foods as Boxfish may accidently ingest air causing buoyancy issues. House with other peaceful tank mates. Juvenile, males and female Boxfish may exhibit colour differences.

Males and females are will generally have small colour differences. Males show a blue body with a large black spot on its head along with blue spots while females are generally black with white spots. White Spotted Boxfish can grow up to 25cm in length.
