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.
We love macro and super macro photography and especially finding rare and special critters around
our island home. We do our best in identifying all critters on this website correctly; however, we
might make mistakes that can be present on this website.
Please keep in mind that this website is created for scuba divers, underwater photographers, and
everybody interested in marine animals. This website is created and organized from a diver’s and an
underwater photographer’s point of view. That’s why we primarily group animals together in a
meaningful way for divers and underwater photographers.
