Longhorn Cowfish do not like heavy currents and look like it. Shaped like odd little “cows” they inhabit shallow placid areas of the Indo-Pacific reefs. Cow fish cannot be kept with aggressive species. Under stress the Cowfish will release a toxin to defend itself, but in the aquarium this could harm all the neighboring fish. Therefore this is not a beginners saltwater fish.
