At Planet Zoa, even the smallest orders are packed with the utmost care. We beleive in giving your live organism the best chance at survival upon arrival. It all starts with a 0.5-1" styrofoam lined box. After that the corals are individually bagged and encapsulated in our signature "zoapod" a protective plastic barrier, so the specimen never actually touches anything in transit. Air is removed from the bag so that your precious coral will always remain wet. The bag is double heat sealed and double bagged, so the risk of leaking water is almost nil. Bags are suspended in packing peanuts, which provides additional shock adsorption in transit. Finally, a heat or cold pack is included for temperature control. This method has proved very effective. In fact, with this method two-day International shipments almost never have losses.
