Free Shipping If You Spend Over $399.99 On Coral


We hold our standards very high here for packing live coral. All live corals are securely and successfully packaged in 3-4 mil poly bags. We fill these bags with the proper amount of quality, balanced saltwater. We then double and sometimes triple bag each item and bag clip each item for extra puncture and leakage protection. From there the bags are placed into 1" - 2.5" insulated shipping containers to keep temperatures balanced and the live coral protected against Mother Nature.
Heat and Cold packs are utilized on a case by case basis. We check overnight weather for every package that leaves our possession. We try not to use them if they are not needed because a lot of the time they do more harm than good in small spaces. 

Styrofoam shipping containers are packed with packing paper and are always covered in a cardboard container to further protect against Mother Nature and poor carrier handling.

All orders are shipped with UPS Overnight service. This allows the live coral to be in transit as short as possible.
When each order ships an email notification is sent to each customer with a tracking update to follow your live coral the whole way. Someone needs to be present at the time of delivery.
This will ensure that when you buy coral online it is not left in the rain, high/low temps, or left for an extended time in its packaging. 
We always prefer shipping to a commercial address.
Whether it be a UPS pickup facility or your office.
With choosing a UPS pickup destination, most orders can be picked up before scheduled delivery and that eliminates the unneeded stress of sitting in a hot truck or on a doorstep all day.
