How to use "Solenidae" in context?
The solenidae are a family of medium to large saltwater fish that inhabit both fresh and salt water, usually living in tropical and subtropical regions. This family of fishes contains some of the most popular and well-known species in the hobby, such as Clown Fish, Surgeonfish and Gourami.
The Solenidae superficially resemble certain other families of fishes, such as the Characidae, but they can be distinguished by their long, pointed snout and their prominent scales on the body and fins.
