    hi everyone,
    Wanted to see how most ppl take corals bought in another state to their home. Ill be traveling in august and will be checking some of the lfs stores on my trip. Do u ship overnight to your house and time it when u get home or do u pack it in suitcase (im assuming carry on not possible w restrictions on liquid). Your input and experience would be greatly appreciated on options.

    You can always check them. I've never had any issues just checking them in my baggage.

    Do u declare it first or just pack it into your luggage? Just checking protocol. So im assuming u have the store hold it till the day of your flight, pack in good w a small cooler?
