Frustrating AHHHHH!!

I ordered a neon green and orange zooanthus from Live Aquaria for 90$ (pricey) and got them yesterday. They also have another species on the rock too. I wasn't that impressed by the size of the colony. The after work today I went to the LFS and he had even better ones for 45$, plus they had some blue ones with them. I will never order corals again, not actually seeing the coral can be deceiving. Live and learn, and oh well I have more zoos now!

Some of the online dealers have what they call "Select" where the pic you see posted is actually the coral you will receive. Off the top of my head though, I can't think of one other than "The Logical Reef" and they haven't had much lately.

The picture was the actual coral I got, but I was still disappointed. I just feel like I overpayed a lot, but you win some and you lose some, I'm sure it's happened to some of you!

I bought my cleanup crew online, and that was it. I would much rather see it before i buy it.

Best, most healthy, and most beautiful fish, I bought online.

I will not buy from the lfs due to overrated prices. I guess it just depends.

PS. Mine came from liveaquaria.com
