    [I am not a teacher.]

    The word -fish can have either of the plural forms as below:

    #1 fish eg. 10 fish

    #2 fishes eg. 10 fishes
    fish - Definition from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary[1]
    So is jellyfish

    #3 10 jellyfish, a lot of jellyfish

    #4 10 jellyfishes, a lot of jellyfishes

    jellyfish - definition of jellyfish by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    Please click the URL links and read the useages of the words. The dictionaries indicate the plural forms clearly.
