Thanks for the reply Troy, I read that too.  They can also release toxins if 
sufficiently stressed and end up killing themselves and everything else in
the tank/ecosystem.  What do they like to eat? Is this different for  
juvenilles and adults? Are they very susceptble to aggresion from gobies  
(unlikely but you never know)? Answers to these questions and any other 
boxfish information eagerly anticipated
