This creature has an English name is Cystisoma.

Reportedly, this creature has the English name Cystisoma , belonging to a subspecies of crustaceans called amphipods hyperphids . This creature is a master at disguising and evolving this ability depending on the depth to which it lives. At a depth of less than 900 meters, where sunlight cannot reach, Cystisoma is usually red or black. Meanwhile, the children live at a depth of 9 meters to 304 meters, where the sun shines but not much, will be transparent. 

Cystisoma can never be seen by the naked eye under water. Its image is obtained thanks to the flash of the camera lens.

With a transparent appearance, Cystisoma is able to evade enemies. In addition, their average size is smaller than normal shrimp so it is not difficult to become "invisible" in the ocean.
