Sorry to hear that! Customer service is so lacking these days from some companies.
Unfortunately, lighting does make a huge difference so you really never know what you might be getting but so does manipulating the contrast. Colors can also be manipulated so easily these days with all the photo programs out there.

Yeah, i got burnt too. Then if you confront him
About it, he tells you never to call him again or to never shop with him. Well, never shopping with him was already the only option.

By the way, he monitors this thread, so keep letting him know what you think about his photoshopped coral.
Surprised someone doesn’t sue him for fraud. Probably wouldn’t be such a tough guy anymore.

This is typical and it sucks for newcomers to look at theae online photos and then get disappointed when they receive it. Many of us that been around learned to see through the Photoshops. Green is often doctored to look yellow under blues. Wait till you get into acros =P. What I usually do is find photos from the vendor of corals that I know the name and color of. Then I can tell how much of a liar they are.

It’s so interesting that just a few years ago people were saying that yellow hammers are incredibly rare. They seem to be all over the place now. I got one from an LFS for $60.
