Best way is to pack them in bag with water. Add to Styrofoam poly box. And depending were you ship to. Bidair is good to use.

If attached onto a frag plug you can attach a piece of foam onto the base via an elastic band. Basically allows the plug to float, foam side up. That way they don't get mangled bouncing around in the bag. done it a couple of times, they fared better than the ones that had nothing.

Depending on what corals you're shipping, it's also a good idea to add a few pieces of carbon to the bags to remove any toxins secreted during shipping due to stress. Especially for nennies and LPS

Morning. Can anyone give advice on how to ship corals?
are you collecting or are you purchaseing and travelling?

that to me will define what kind of effort i need to make in order to keep things as stable as possible, also what mode of transport are you using? car or plane?
