2nd day with my new cow fish, it is around 1.5″ and currently in a 65 gallon tank. It seems to have adapted nicely and has been roaming the tank hunting for food, and no problem with the current.

I bet it swims by farting in the water.

@bacolodish You are unfortunately right, I suspect they all ended up in one of the anemones… sigh. The clownfish had been with me for 7+ years but passed away before I broke the tank down when I moved. Have a new tank now though with no fish disappearing. *knock on wood*

@mjndblain Yep, for saltwater tank.

@houndoknight LFS is your best bet since you can make sure the fish is healthy, otherwise many online stores carry them frequently!

@MWProductions3 Not long term since they get huge, but a baby would fit in there for a couple months.

@laptoprepairs In a way, their destructive nature kind of adds to their cute appeal.

Yes, it’s a common expression that doesn’t necessarily denote imediate relation.

I want a cow fish so badly in my reef set up, But in the north east of England im finding it really hard to get hold of one ? any advice please ..

hi chow! ive browsed your videos and it seemed to me you already bought alot of fishes but they’re not lasting too long. btw, how often do you do water changes? and you have your clown fish fish for 7 years?

@MokYiChow this happened to mine as well… i was sooo sad. i gave up my giant anemone in order to keep them after that…

you should be careful with these. they release toxins. i once had one and it wiped out my entire livestock except the blue damsel you should use caution when you put it in a reef tank as it ate my favorite featherduster.

I’m pretty sure all puffer and box fish are poisinous, only if you eat them.
