  1. molidae

    Molidae is a family of bony fish species known for being the heaviest and some of the largest placoderm fish that exist in the oceans today. This family is characterized by species like sunfish, moonfish, and headfish who have unusual shapes, featuring greatly shortened, rounded bodies and large dorsal and anal fins. They are also unique because their caudal (tail) fin is more of a clavus (a rounded rudder) than a standard tail fin seen on most other fish. Their primary diet usually consists of various forms of jellyfish.
