Hey all I just moved to florida and we have a bad cold spell which caused a bunch of fish to wash up on the shore. While walking down the beach we found a sole survivor. This guy was tough, who knows how long he sat in the sand. But what I do know is it took me over an hour to walk to the car and drive home. I got him a tank and torched it with my mix of salt in the water, then finally just went to the ocean and warmed that water up and put him in it. He layed on his side and upside down for about 10 hrs. I got up this morning and he was swimming around. They should change the name to indestructible fish! Anyway I have him now and he's the nicest friendly fish ever, everyone should have one! Love him. See ya all.

    That's cool. Cowfish seem pretty strange but then very... special (in a good way of course). All though they have toxins and stuff in their flesh and can also release a toxin, I think it'd be cool to have one as a pet. Well that's all I can say for now. Buh-bye.[:

I have a Blue Spotted Toby, he always waits untill after all the other fish have eaten then he takes what's left or the meal. He is very reclusive and does not seem to like coming out when the tank light is on during the day, but loves to come out from the rocks at dusk and dawn, by far the most docile fish in my tank.

Hi everyone, had a cowfish about 2 years now. Was less than an inch when I got him, now just over eight. Eats like a horse. Predictably my six year old daughter named him moo..... Anyway, he eats from my hands, let's me pet him, follows me round the room, great! On the negative side, squirts me if I dont feed him and squirts while I'm out, leaving streaks on the tank and puddles on the floor. Worst of all, on at least 3 occasions when cleaning, dropped my gaurd and he decided I was food! In less than a second has managed to shred enough skin off my wrist, finger, and arm to draw blood. Shouldn't bite the hand that feeds you! Try telling him that...

I have a porcupine puffer and his name is mister puff. He's a very cool fish and always begs me for his food. The only problem is that when I'm a little late to feed him, he eats all the small fish in my tank (clownfish, damselfish, anything small etc..) So if you like small fish don't get this fish, because you will be very sad when you get home.

We also have a cowfish called Charlie - only had him for a few months but already he's the main attraction in the tank! He eats out of your hand and if you go into the other room, he squeezes into one corner of the tank so he can actually still see you - we end up back in the other room to keep him company! Saw the comment about petting him - hmmm I'll have to give that a try! It's like having a 'puppy in a tank'. His latest trick is to annoy my boxer shrimp by swimming up to him really close... the shrimp then runs at him - he races off all excited then goes back and does it again!

I have had my porcupine puffer for 3 months now and I love this fish. They are so much fun to watch, their personalities are fun. When he is hungry he will splash and follow you in the tank till you give him what he wants. I don't see him as an aggressive fish since he is fine with our sting ray, believe it or not they swill laps together.

Cowfishes are by far the coolest fish ever! We have one named helicopter that's been with us for 4 months, but already he has expressed himself to us. I've never seen a fish that actually has a personality. He is so brave and one can actually pet him. Yes he is great and does love to eat. He has parasites though, and doesn't let the cleaner wrasse or cleaner shrimp clean him. What should I do?

I love the porcupine fish because it is as cute as a puppy. I hope to have one in my tank. I think that my tank is just nice for him, in my tank I have a clownfish and a red tail file fish. I wish that my wish will come true.

Porcupine fish are cool. I have none but my teacher forced me to learn about them. My teacher is watching over us like a hawk and a fish.
