    Hectic! Did you really place that order Sean? Does it come with all the official documentation for getting through customs? If it does, that is quite cool, but hellishly expensive!!

    How expensive is the shipping in relation to the coral price/size. Is it an overnight courier service?

    The methods of collecting corals in Australia are truly advanced to say the least. Corals like Goniopora, Cataphyllia, Alveopora, Euphyllia and Acropora are great shippers compared to what the industry has experienced in the last decade. In the short 2 + years that Australian Corals have been imported, these corals have had a better success rate of survivability while residing in closed reef systems The beauty, diversity and survivability is truly refreshing for everybody.
