Fluorescing secretary blenny!
I used a very shallow depth of field, enabling me to focus solely on the blenny and let the coral blur out of focus. To capture the fluorescence I used Nightsea filters.

Fluorescence! A goby glows brightly on brain coral. I shot this using Nightsea filters: the fluorescence is excited by the blue light emitted through my strobes and then recorded through the Nightsea filter over my macro port.
