    When are you going back home ?
    You must book the " live stock " onto a flight to travel with you to travel on your flight so it lands with you for convenience sake .
    Once you have your stock , come around to us and we will oxygenate and repack the stock into a Polly box for you.
    Pop in in time and well make the call ect as well to book the freight back for you on your return flight.

    Friday open till 5:30
    saterday till 2:00
    sunday till 1
    week days till 5:30

    Can take it in as hand luggage.
    Got one of those small Coleman 2L jugs. Take it in with me. Put it through the scanner and show them what is inside if they ask. No problem. Done it a few times this year.
    Only issue is to make sure you closed the lid properly and that it stays upright. Not nice if you drip the guy next to the window in salt water... :whistling:

    That does depend on the volume you want to take with. If big box with 30 corals, yeah, might get a bit of a problem. Mine was a little 2L jug. Keep that in mind.
