Whitespotted boxfish

Whitespotted boxfish (Ostracion meleagris) couple. The male is the upper fish. This fish inhabits coral reefs in the tropical Indo-Pacific region. It can reach a length of around 25 centimetres and feeds on sponges, molluscs, sea squirts and worms. When threatened it can release a poison called ostracitoxin, which can kill nearby fish and other animals. This is of particular concern for aquarists who keep the fish as a pet, as a stressed or dying boxfish will often release the toxin, which can wipe out the entire tank.
