Probably the most well known of the boxfish! The Cowfish, Longhorn Cowfish, or Long-horned Cowfish can be seen in almost every public aquarium. They are hardy and they love to eat!

The Cowfish, Longhorn Cowfish, or Long-horned Cowfish are easily recognized by the horns on the forehead and the bottom rear of the body. These horns make them hard for predators to swallow. In any case their flesh is poisonous and would not make for a very good meal!

NOTE: The Cowfishes in the genus Lactoria, especially this Cowfish, Longhorn Cowfish, or Long-horned Cowfish must be dealt with carefully. If overly harrassed or stressed, it can release the toxic substance, ostracitoxin. This is a response to stress and can poison your tank. Make sure you keep this fish in a comfortable and not overly stressed environment, and keep it well fed!

Yikes, I just do not think I would be comfortable putting this in with any other fish. Though it is very unique looking and quite colorful.

That is so cool. It is a different looking fish that is for sure.

I think this is one of those "it's so ugly, it's cute" kind of pets. Smile

It really is an interesting-looking fish.

Don't these fish grow big? At least 6-10 inches long? Can you have another kind of fish in the tank with them?
