Is there anyone currently here that has the balls to keep a boxfish ???

I really want one,,, but I'm afraid when they decide to pull the pin and nuke the tank...

I had one for a few years and loved it. I ended up selling him to another Canreefer because he was getting to big for my tank. And he ate like a pig.

I have 2 yellow Boxfish in the same tank , I dont think the yellow ones are as toxic as say the Bluespot Box that is the more dangerous one for nuking. The Black Boxfish (female) and Blue Boxfish (male) are extremely difficult to keep . yellow ones are your best bet , I have tried several Black and Blues over my years and could never get one to eat never had any success . Never see them in anybody's tanks I have only seen yellow ones . But yeah I would not worry too much if you get a yellow box about nuking the tank . Just make sure you QT it as Boxfish are ich magnets , but if you get one past QT you should be fine after words and make sure you dont add non QT fish after as they can get the ich fast from adding other fish
