Q:  How Do You Ship?
A:  Our Coral is packed just prior to being shipped.  Each frag is secured in a 4oz specimen container, the containers are then placed in a larger bag that is sealed, the bag is then placed in a Styrofoam shipping container with the appropriate heating or cooling pack.  Larger colonies that do not fit in specimen cups are triple bagged and placed in the container. 
Our Coral ships via UPS Next Day Air (1030).  At checkout you will also have the option to select UPS Next Day Air Early (0830) or UPS Next Day Air Saver (1500).  Our Arrive Alive Guarantee is only valid when your coral is shipped via UPS Next Day Air Early (0830) or UPS Next Day Air (1030).  Read More
