I believe the plugs are there to prevent damage to the horns of the cowfish during transport.

Nice f8 Tim =P, definitely born to be a puffer model XD. I knew right away he'd win! I wish I had a better camera, the quality of my pic sucks, and unfortunately that hinders the beauty... very sad, since my puffer is so darn beautiful =D.

I wish I had a better camera too, the one I have is very old (10 years now, 3 megapixels :lol:), but it has unbeatable macro features, sharp upto 1cm from object and a shutter time upto 10000th of a second. It's especially useful with those puffers that never want to keep still :lol:

Cowfish, iirc, *can* release a toxin in the water when stressed or injured (and when they kick the bucket). Imagine it doing that at the LFS where most systems share the same sump.

Chance of this actually happening are probably very rare.


If the new tankis large enough I might opt to get one. Still trying to figure out what size will work the best with the space available

I would hate to be a the owner of a fs and have a disgruntled employee and cowfish at hand.. first you get the knowledge, then you get the cowfish and then you have the power.

I just wish I could take a picture of anything that didn't turn out a blur. No matter how sophisicated a camera I can still miss the perfect shot.
