|Clingfish have long,
tapered bodies and lack the relatively large fins as seen
in most other fish. Once they settle with their host
Crinoid, they have little need for much movement, and the
taper in their bodies helps them mimic the shape of the
pinnules of the Crinoid, enhancing its survivability.
