Looks like an engineer goby. Have you checked your water parameters?

Did it have those things when he have it to you or did they appear afterwards? How are the friend's water parameters? Is it both eyes that are cloudy, or just one?

Red spots can be something bacterial or from ammonia. Cloudy eyes are usually bacterial or poor water quality. It's a toss up, IMO...if the tank it came from had poor water quality and/or was not cycled properly, that could be the cause of both. If it was not that, it could be bacterial.
