Peppermint Goby? or Cardinalfish?

Images: 

Bonaire, night dive. These are two separate fish seen on the same night dive. Peppermint Goby? but then what's with the dark blotch at the base of tail?

No, not a Peppermint Goby.

No, not a Peppermint Goby. That looks like a Freckled Cardinalfish. I think the blue in your photo is just a reflection of its innards and some luminescence at night.

Thank you!
