Hi Teilo, I agree with you. Many of the gurnards have brightly coloured pectoral fins, but like you, I think that those of the Red Gurnard are stunning. It's not just the gurnards, however, that have markings on the inside of the pectoral fins. If you are interested, have a look at the page on the Demon Stingerfish.
