Giant Mola mola comes up out of the dark, deep ocean to find cleaning fish. The Latin name mola means "millstone", which the fish resembles. Tetraodontiformes. Molidae. Moody, dark. The mola mola turns sideways to show its wounds and parasites, a signal to the juvenile fish seen swimming beyond, to come clean off the dead tissue and parasites, by picking at them with their mouths. School of small fish beyond could be young mackerel (Scomber japonicus) or senorita fish (Oxyjulis californica). Blue Pacific Ocean near California. Underwater.
