It is some kind of boxfish buts it green and apparently stays small I have heard that they are just baby boxfish but I saw one in brave wilderness video if this is a species
1) how big does it get and what tank size
2) can you even keep one in a aquarium
3) can they wipe out your tank like other box fish can ?https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170718/342016799543494fea7489cbf0eac25f.jpg

He looks like an O. cubicus based on the second pic.

I had an O. cubicus for some time. They are easy to keep. They are not great swimmers so should be kept with peaceful mates. You do have to take care not to spook them to much because they can release ostratoxin which can wipe out the tank. I never had a problem with that. Mine was very friendly. They do get large, 12"+ and as they do they become less colorful and turn more brown. Mine grew slow, so not sure how long that would take.
