Shot with a Nikon D80, 60mm lens, 2 Inon Z240 strobes (1 positioned directly above set on sTTL, second strobe placed to the left set on sTTL Low setting no.2). Slight adjustments of exposure, shadows and saturation in CS2 RAW converter.

I am wondering if taken from an angle directly above the goby, and close enough or cropped enough to see only the lines on the single bubble with the fish. Rather like a fish on a zebra background.
Perhaps not better than this shot, but interesting to consider.
Just a passing thought.

I also feel that the subject for the shot is too centered, a slightly more artistic crop, utilising the rule of thirds and/or some negative space would be great, however with macro work I generally prefer the subject to be a little larger in the frame see changes below one man's meat is another man's poison. The other thing is that slightly detracts form the photo is the backscatter top left that can easliy be cones out or sorted with the healing brush.
Again just my $0.02
