Sea animal = Octopus? coral? anenome? sea urchin? shark? oyster? a type of shellfish? Seal? Dolphin?

Is the type of fish relevant? is there one particular fish that lives in this house? several types?

Does the sea animal grow this home intentionally? for the fish? for it's own purpose? for the purpose of something else?

I have researched this a bit and it seems that, generally, it is rarely found outside of this environment.

I did receive your reply, and I'm a bit relieved to be wrong... :)

Does this fish live on or within another living creature?

******SPOILER******
I think Pandora has pretty much solved this one. :)
There is a fish, Nomeus Gronovii, or the Portuguese Man O' War fish, which lives amongst the tentacles of the Portuguese Man O' War jellyfish, eating food scraps and possibly even tentacles. However, if the fish is injured, this activates the predatory instinct of its host, which then proceeds to devour its lodger! It's a "(jelly)fish eat fish" world down there!
Well done Pandora and thanks to all who participated.
