The redhead goby Paragobiodon echinocephalus lives exclusively within the branching coral Stylophora pistillata. While in the Great Barrier Reef fish occupation rate of large coral is higher than that of small coral, an opposite pattern exists in the northern Red Sea. It is suggested that this pattern is caused by a limitation on the adult body size of fish in the northern Red Sea.
