How we ship your corals:

All corals are double - triple bagged, placed in a 1/2" thick styrofoam cooler box with free heat/cool packs and packed with up cycled newspaper or bubblewrap.  We ship out by 6:30pm so that your order is in transit for the least amount of time possible.  We also check your zip code on the Weather Channel before shipping to make sure everything is packed specific to the current conditions in your area.

Coral Acclimation Procedures:

For most corals, floating them for one hour to temperature acclimate them is enough. Inverts need to be acclimated slower with 50% change in water twice-three times for at least two hours. If you have any questions or concerns just contact us. We are here to help and want to make your buying experience as worry free as possible.
