The mushroom coral pipefish, Siokunichthys nigrolineatus, is a small pipefish, which are occasionally found in the coastal coral reefs of Indonesia, the Philippines and New Guinea. Apparently commensal with Heliofungia actiniformes. She prefers to live in water depths around 10-20 m, in depressions of the reef flat near the lagoon, where the tide plankton-rich water flow over.
