these puffers can be kept in freshwater for a reason but is not recommended as these fish are born in freshwater rivers up stream from the ocean and as it grows will gradually move into brackish then finally full out salt water. they are often sold as freshwater or brackish water fish but do not have great success in freshwater tanks best to gradually acclimate them to a marine tank using the drip method

If you add them to a "mostly fish only" tank containing hardy corals such as mushrooms and polyps, it will soon become a "true fish only" tank. My new puffer eats my mushrooms as if they were pancakes hot off the griddle! :-)

i have kept cowfish for 20 years and i own a marine only shop and i have never seen a captive cowfish over 23cm. I had one who was called moo and lived like 10 years. all other captive cowfish only grew to around 20cm. moo lived in a 180 gallon tank with two clowns all his life and they were completely fine and super tame:)

I had a longhorned cowfish for five years and then it suddenly died. The truth about the poison is that unless the fish is stressed or being attacked at the time of death it will not release the poison.

I had a porcupine puffer about 7 inches long when I introduced a Green Wolf Eel approx 5 inches long. The puffer is always curious about tank mates but has never shown aggression towards the wolf, they get along fine.

This fish is very fun to watch swim and even to watch eat!This fish can even learn to eat out of your own hand!*but watch out,he may nip at your fingers*!But other wise this fish is worth every penny of you money!(Will get very agressive when eating or feeding).
