The point is manipulating colors to represent something that's not real.. That's all he's saying. Some are looking too deep into this... But let's be real. There's vendors out there that's doing this. Adam was right to not call them by name because he himself is a vendor. It would make him look like Donny Trump hurling insults at lyin Ted... (While what he's saying may be true, it would make him look like he's doing it only to benefit himself) but let's be honest. There's a difference from touching up colors to get that professional look for a website.. And altering colors to sell something that doesn't exist. In every other form of business it's called fraud but for some reason it's becoming the accepted norm in this hobby. The best way to stop it is by buying from guys that don't do it.. It's not hard to find out which ones. All it takes is some coversations with people in the community. People like Adam from Battlecorals, Gary from Reef Pets etc have a reputation that they've earned.So what about this.... You go to a show you see all the corals under only one spectrum, blue only. If a vendor at the show turns any white on even a hint some other vendor whines. I personally replicate exactly what you would see at a show and nothing more. I do not fool with post. Just put the correct camera in my hands that the wb will shoot true to the eye.
The only person I know that still sells coral under a mh light at a show is Tyree. Still rocking the mh without any led supplement.
