Is this a Jelly-Fish?

I'm not entirely sure I understand what Fish are. According to the program I created, the selected cells (including the pink one) form a jelly-fish. Jelly-Fish are supposed to be rare, but they seem to appear very frequently in the puzzles my sudoku game generates. Any help is appreciated. Thanks :)

There is a sense in which that is a Jelly Fish, but most would not consider it as a valid Jelly Fish. Fish are only normally counted as valid when all singles have been dealt with first. That puzzle is full of singles, and can in fact be completely solved with singles alone.
