    Hey guys

    I'm sending two Monti plates to Salim from Cape Town to Durban. I phoned UPS this morning to find out about the status of the package and was told that it was being rejected due to "Plants in water". Obviously there would be water in the bags.

    My question is to the sponsors. What do you clasify your coral shipments as? What do you tell the couriers is in the bags so that they don't reject it?

    UPS now says that they are not allowed to transport water filled bags. It must be in glass jars. What BS is that!?!
