Common Names – Hovercraft fish, Pyramid fish, Camel Cowfish

Tank Environment – These fish can be considered reef safe as they will only so much as nibble on corals. As with all cowfish it is wise to keep them with non-aggressive or boisterous fish. Live rock is always considered good to add to a marine aquarium whether it has corals or whether it is put in a fish only tank. Live rock creates a place for cowfish to graze upon and it helps with the water quality. Be sure to decorate your aquarium so that the cowfish will not get bored and swim up and down the sides of the aquarium.

Other – These particular cowfish are triangular in shape and have sharp edges on their sides.
