As far as size?

Online I found up to seven inches. Again I don't know anything else about the fish. I don't know if that is accurate, but I hope it helps. I just found it online. If I were you I would do my own research as well as listening to the aquarium "addicts", as another name for us. I will look up any other questions you have, and try to help.

Thank you so much this is very helpful, what about whitespotted boxfish? I read six as well as three and eighteen? Not sure which is right? Also what should I aim for as a max length for a box/cowfish in my tank? I've seen twelve inches in a 55 which I'm pretty sure is wrong as well as 3 in in a 75 which seems excessive....ideas?

Tetrosomus gibbousus will get about 11". The only boxfish that fit the bill would be Ostracion solorensis or Ostracion whitleyi. Be aware they do contain ostracitoxin.

What's the old saying, "teach a person to fish, food for a lifetime"...something something See that linky in my Sig that says Fishbase? Click it, add the scientific names where it instructs, and you will have all the information you need at your fingertips
