A Fire Dartfish (Nemateleotris magnifica) or Red Fire Goby is one of the most spectacular fish on tropical reefs and one of the most difficult to photograph as they hover over their burrows on the sandy ocean floor near coral reefs.
Image taken on the South Mantis dive site which is part of the Northern Great Deatched Reef system in far north Queensland in Australia.
Detached Reef's in the area are named as they are near - but not directly attached to the Great Barrier Reef system.
