The circumtropical Glasseye, Heteropriacanthus cruentatus (Lacepede 1801), can be found most anywhere seawater is warm on the planet. It grows to a maximum of one foot in length. Wakatobi, S. Sulawesi, Indo. pic.
My favorite of the family is the handsomely red, Crescent-Tail Bigeye, Priacanthus hamrur (Forsskal 1775), widely taken in the Pacific to the Indian Ocean and Red Sea. Be aware that this fish can get to eighteen inches long; feed sparingly. Mauritius image.

Of species occasionally available, the Short Bigeye, Pristigenys alta (Gill 1862), makes its way up to Jersey shores and can be hand-net collected there or purchased from Caribbean points southward. Tropical west Atlantic. To a foot in length. 100-660 feet
Pristigenys serrula (Gilbert 1891), the Popeye Catalufa. Eastern Pacific; Monterey to Peru. To thirteen inches in length. Nocturnal, hides during the day as the Cardinalfishes, Squirrelfishes. This one at the Denver Aquarium, Colorado.
