Some fish are shaped like bread boxes. How silly!
A freshwater Puffer. Their little fins flap so quickly, they look like little bumblebees swarming around the tank. Boy do I want one of these!
And the silliest of all is the Cowfish. He thinks he is a cow, but please don’t try to milk him.

I think the silliest fish are those lookdown fish. The ones which are flat but have large eyes that look as if they are always looking at the floor.
As a kid there used to be these seris of books about fish with funny names and the book would talk about their adventures. http://www.amazon.com/Lucky-Lookdown-Funny-Suzanne-Nature/dp/0961634480
“lucky look-down” was my favorite book in the series!
Awww, sweet! We had a puffer and cowfish. Our puffer had the most beautiful blue eyes.
That lookdown fish is very silly – kind of like the Hatchet fish that we have. They look like little two-dimensional mayors.
Tasha, I am so jealous! I must have a cowfish someday. But a marine tank is still a little far off for us.
I love them all!! Yay for you loving these awesome fishies – and blogging about them :-)
Just had to let you know how cute those fish can be.
When I was snorkelling in Rarotonga 2 years ago I saw a baby box fish which was just gorgeous! It was about the size of a dice and so small you couldnt see its fins or tail so it just looked like this little yellow spotted box flitting about in the water.
