They can be housed with other non-aggressive fish; however, the potential of toxin release will always be present and some sp. moreso than others. Nutrition is always of great importance with this family as is the size of their enclosure (think along the lines of surgeonfish).

How long have you had your tank? Boxfish are better suited for a mature tank and tankkeeper, so if you have the skill level, go for it.
