"Hi, it seems every site I read about yellow box fish say they grow to 18 inches (45cms)? I've had mine for years and it is only 2.5 inches. After more research I have found they have a maximum size of 3 inches. Dr. Jungle finds the facts!... "The Polka-dot Boxfish, also known as the Yellow Boxfish, Ostracion cubicus reaches a length of 45.0 cm (18 inches). This information can be found in the works of author Dr. Burgess's in his "Atlas of Marine Aquarium Fishes", authors Rudie H. Kuitter and Helmut Debelius in their "World Atlas of Marine Fishes", and in Wikipedia." Maybe you have a different boxfish species in your aquarium? Otherwise the growth of your boxfish, if it is the Yellow Boxfish Ostracion cubicus, may have been stunted for some reason. But it is more likely that it is a different species."
