[Edit: corrected exo to endo after hearing from ronk. He also says it's Sashimi, but I'm not in full agreement.]
Note: the Starfish later reduces to Jellyfish r1249/c....

Jelly, or finned jelly is likely, I needed one or the other.
There are so many smaller patterns that you may well sail through:!:

3 . .|. . .|4 . 5
. . .|. 7 .|. 2 1

. . 1|5 . 8|6 . .
. 5 .|7 4 .|. . .
-----+-----+-----
1 4 .|. 6 .|. . .
6 . 7|. . .|. . 8
. 9 .|. . 4|. . 7


Edited: yep, it looks snake like. I am trying other symmetry.

'---------------'---------------'---------------'


where a little coloring on the 6's gives r4c5<>6. Locked candidates then gives r6c8<>6 (as well as r5c9<>6) revealing r9c8=6. From here, we do a little 3D multi-coloring to reveal the following:

[r8c7]=4=[r7c7]-4-[r7c5]-3-[r7c2]=3=[r9c2]=1=[r9c9]-1-[r8c7]

implying r8c7<>1. Other than a little skyscraper on 2 at the end, this solves the puzzle.
