He is not the only one who received wrong fish…. Completely understand his frustrations!
I think you’re being a little too emotional about this. If I’m fact he sent you something other than a yellow eye kole tang, then he will make it up to you. However, the more logical and probably explanation is that you cannot readily identify the fish as a yellow eye for two reasons. One: it’s a juvenile that’s hasn’t developed its colors yet. Two: exactly what you were already told and the fish is stressed. Fish DO exhibit different colors and patterns when stressed. Instead of making a scene on this thread, I would advise you wait for communication from Mike. Some passerby may quickly scroll through here and believe your dilemma is actual truth when in reality, Mike has a stellar reputation with the reefing community. 100% of my current fish have all came from him. When presented with an issue, he’s always made it right.
Lastly, my last shipment from him contained a juvenile desjardini. It was so small that I couldn’t see the markings resembling a desjardini tang. Sent Mike pictures and he assured me I couldn’t see the markings because it was a juvenile. Two months later, I have such a majestic looking desjardini tang with incredible markings. It is super happy in my tank. It got right to work in the algae and is definitely a highlight of my tank.
