The Sunshine Boxfish has a pale gold colour body with darker yellow spotted with pale blue fins and lines between the hexagonal plates.

This is a very difficult fish to keep in the aquarium setting by any other than the most experienced aquarist. Use caution if placing the Sunshine Boxfish in a reef tank as they will often nibble at tubeworms. When stressed, the Sunshine Boxfish releases a poisonous substance, called ostracitoxin, from its mucous glands which will kill other fish in the tank very quickly.

Very little success has been achieved in breeding these fish in an aquarium. When first introduced, the Sunshine Boxfish can be fed a diet of live brine shrimp or bloodworms. After acclimatization, chopped squid, clams, mussels, and herbivore preparations can be fed.
