The goldeye is very similar to the mooneye. It is able to live in very turbid waters, and is sometimes even found in lakes and sloughs. The goldeye is more nocturnal than its cousin the mooneye, and has been known to gorge on fireflies on windy nights


Description

Goldeye have much more formiddable teeth than their cousin the mooneye.  Also, the dorsal fin on a goldeye starts behind the anal fin while the mooneye's dorsal is situated in front of the anal fin.  The eyes of the goldeye are somewhat more yellowish as well.
