It's a dartfish of some kind, for sure. Similar to a Blue Gudgeon Goby but the fins are not black. Can you get a better picture of it?

"55gal glass box full of water, rocks and some not-so-amused little fishes"
2x Occellaris, 2x Pajamas, Neon Dottyback, Matted Filefish, Nems, Sun Coral, snails, hermits and a banded brittle star.

Current Tank Info: 55gal tank, sumpless, ReefOctopus Classic 90, Twin bulb T5.
