    Good day.

    I'd just like to poke for some generalised opinions and ideas surrounding the time frame that live stock can stay in transit when properly packed with sufficient water and oxygen and box properly sealed and insulated?

    This would include fish, corals, inverts, etc.

    It will be Species dependent with hardier corals/fish surviving up to 72 hrs or even more.

    I have done trips from Cape Town to Joburg with corals in a car. I have lost nothing so far. The last trip I left Cape Town too early to add pure oxygen to the bags, all fish shops were closed, and still everything made it. 15 hour drive (visited a friend during the trip)

    My shipment was in transit this week for 27 hours and all arrived in near perfect conditions.
