Hi guys

Recently a did a huge purchase from an online vendor, I got a impressive scoly, to be specific this was the picture of the piece

As you can see the intensity of the colors is waaaaayyyy too whitish and not near as bright as the seller picture.

The question here is will it at some point get brighter like the seller picture or it was just photoshopped and will stay as I have it?

Yesterday I was offered to exchange it for some blasto and Australian green hammer wall and maybe a colorless tiny scoly and a friend of mine is telling me to exchange it for those corals cuz the scoly will never Bright up as the seller picture and it's not worthy to keep it and it's best to exchange it for this

I'm asking this to make a decision of keeping it or to exchange it.


Thanks in advance.

frist that's a trachyphyllia not scoly. scoly in that coloration will most likely cost you about a mortgage payment on a decent house.
if you want that coloration, put the coral about 8" away from the nice led light that's cluster all led togather like ai or radion(mostly blue), make sure the coral is not puff up then take a picture with an dslr adjust the white balance a little you should get something close.

Ok that's was like a big bucket full of cold water thrown at me AHAHAHAHAHAAHA

Then it's not a scoly that news is more horrible than any Michael Bay film.

At the end I believe I should make the trade with my fellow reefer cuz if I'm not wrong a trachy with that color will cost no more than 130 usd.

I would definitely keep the scoly. However, it looks like a photoshopped picture to me, and your scoly will never look like that. Most vendors' photos on the internet are doctored, I would say 99.9% of the time.
