Like longhorn cowfish, box fish can release a toxin capable of killing other fish, inverts, and themselves. These fish can get to be at least two feet long.

But think about it any fish is capable of the destruction of your other fish at the end of the day most of them are scavengers and capable of killing one another and I wouldn't miss out on this little guy cause he is so friendly and if he was gonna self distruct don't you think he would have done it in the shop when they tried to catch him or when he was in the bag on the way home, they were possibly the scariest times in his little life I have him in with non aggressive fish they all sleep together and are really fond of one an other so I think I'll be just fine if not you live you learn thanks for the article and concern (:
