In our GOT, our boxfishes get their own special feeding station which helps them eat without competition from some of our more aggressive species. More on that station in a later post.
The boxfishes are divided up into 2 groups: cowfishes, which have a spine over each eye; and trunkfishes, which lack these spines.
|Lactophrys trigonus, (common) trunkfish|
|Lactophrys triqueter, smooth trunkfish|
|Acanthostracion polygonia, honeycomb cowfish|
|Acanthostracion quadricornis, scrawled cowfish|
|Can you spot the boxfishes?|
We posted about boxfish feedings a while back, and it's adorable. Here's a peek at the feeding, more video soon!
