Purple fire fish?

Just got a message from someone I know who works at a LFS and they have some purple fire fish in? I've never heard of them but apparently they're very rare, he sent me these pictures, what you guys think?

Haha yea they look like some type of goby. If they were/are fresh you better get them cause they are one of a kind lol. But I don't think they are fresh

They are saltwater fish and are actually quite common. They were one of my favorites when I kept reef tanks.
