As we tend to focus on the eyes of the creatues we photograph, i'd be more concerned about their health than about having red spots in the image. :mad:
Normal aiming lights mounted on a strobe usually don't influence the picture very much. In digital uw photography an aiming light can be very usefull to help your camera focusing in lowlight situations.

Also, the comment about laser pointers and the eyes is a good point. We don't know enough about the effects of strobes/lasers on fish to really know, but should keep that in consideration...
An aiming light (rather than pointer) will assist in the camera's autofocus as well.
