The Armorheads are a small family, Pentacerotidae, of fishes in the order Perciformes. They are native to the Indo-Pacific and southwestern Atlantic.Their name, from Greek pente meaning "five" and keras meaning "horn," refers to the prominent sharp spines in their dorsal fin (though these do not number five in all species).The Perciformes, also called the Percomorphi or Acanthopteri, is one of the largest orders of vertebrates, containing about 40% of all bony fish. Perciformes means perch-like.show more
