Any chance you can get a pic of him? Your pics are a little small and I can't see what he looks like.
Try this:
Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Cowfish Longhorn
I would read up on him, since they have poisonous and can poison the tank if stressed.

I just caught this. Is your cowfish in a 20G tank? If so, he can wipe out the whole tank and himself if he gets stressed or dies. He should be in at least a 125G tank. I don't know how I didn't pick up on that...hmmmm.
