In fact it is a much rarer fish - Stonogobiops xanthorhinica:

Looks like they have legit Dracula’s up today if you are looking.

Could be, but the person could have cancelled the order on the fish and they just relisted the fish. Seems odd though that two people cancelled

So did they hand deliver the fish or send it though UPS? I would hate to have a UPS driver toss it around.

It take a lot of money, passion and crazy to buy something like this, buying the Pepermint Angel. Hat off to you. Hope you enjoy him for a long time.

That would make a lot of sense. If you got babies out of this your investment will more than pay off and a great benefit for the reefing world.

Drew, if you ever get eggs from the Pepps, you need to fly in Karen B. from Hawaii and have her try to raise the eggs! Good luck to you and congrats!

Interesting.. Maybe it is a generic picture they put up for this fish when it is sold?

I believe I have seen this picture several times myself before.

Why would they change the picture after the fish sold? And they don't do that for others.

I also have a hard time believing that these listings were for the same pair and that it was cancelled twice and then relisted twice under 3 different item numbers.

What's more likely is that someone at DD decided to use this picture when they can't get good shots of the actual fish.

Digital pictures downloaded to a computer. Try naming them all something that can be correctly picked when the ads go up.

See the part that says sold on the picture. I do not think that is part of the original picture? Instead of editing each picture it may put up a generic picture when sold. I am not sure how the site works for that or if it is just a layer. I am not a web designer so it is a guess.

The "this item is sold" is an automatic overlay and not part of the picture. You see that clearly when right-clicking on the picture and saving it to your computer. The saved picture won't have the "this item is sold" banner.
They certainly don't spend time and money on manually editing and updating postings of sold items. Those changes you see on sold items are automated.
