I personally think it’s comical that all these people talking about Cornbred can’t even spell his name right! HAHA

Cornbred, not Cornbread

IMO, Cornbred = Rip Off

Did you get the coral you paid for?
It turns out it wasn't wysiwyg. So I cant answer that. I did receive a o.g bounce. It looked freshly cut. So I'm thinking they cut off a piece from the mother and mailed it out as a replacement. It's a shame.

Dose anyone know if it's ok to mail out fresh cut frags?

Usually not. They are already stressed as is and become more prone to disease during shipping. It's a mushroom. So if it hasn't melted yet.. Doesn't mean it wont either.
However, it has a chance to heal and grow still.

Edit: I am sorry you had a terrible vendor ebay experience. And got very "civil" treatment.

Civil treatment yes. Now thinking back I'm lucky for that. They did the right thing. Also they could have kept my money. If they wanted to.

A big thing a lot of new hobbiests overlook is the difference in parameters from one tank to the next. Sometimes the difference is quite large.

What, not trying to be rude but that has nothing to do with what was mentioned in that comment. I'm out, definitely not sticking around for another witch hunt again.

I wonder how many more views/followers the real cornbread got from this post?

what do they say any publicity is good publicity?;)
I’m sure he got plenty of views but I for one would never do business with cornbred. Not because of this experience but for the simple fact that I can’t trust/ recreate the lighting on how the pieces look. Same reason I didn’t participate in joe knows reef live sale. The coloration on the corals are so enhanced / cartoonish that I really have no clue on what I should expect.

I wouldn’t either, I have heard all he ships are nubs. I do have an acro that is claimed to be a cornbread piece, I think I paid $25-35 for the frag from a local reefer and on his site it was $1k
