Clingfish (#34A)
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.

Clingfish Identification:
Discotrema crinophila
