This species seems to go by several common names including Red-eyed Goby, Pink-eye Goby, Purple-eye Goby, and Hovering Goby. Its scientific name is Bryaninops natans and it is definitely one of the most interesting fish for underwater macro photography. The eyes are bright pink and body is partly yellow-colored but mostly see-through, so you can see the fish’s organs and all details. They are typically less than 9 cm in length.
