Oh I forgot I hadn't suggested the ID for this one! They're called glasseye snappers, the reason they have red colouration and their eyes are so big is because they are usually nocturnal fish :) They must have been disturbed by something. And very neat about the eyes, that's so cool...

I don't know about the species, but take a look at this link: and look for Fish Eyes on Photographs.
