Habitat and Geography

           Reef Stonefish can be found in wide range of places.  From Indo-Pacific to Africa, and even Tuomoto Archipelago.  They mostly live among coral bottoms, under rock ledges, and sometimes found around rubbles.  However they have been found on sandy and muddy bottoms as well.  They share this niche with many other bottom dwelling organisms such as corals, crustaceans, rays, sharks and many other organisms.
