Pack in thick fish bag with equal amount of air and water. Place on top of packing peanuts surrounded by packing peanuts everywhere and in a newspaper, place a heat pack on top and seal box

If I was shipping with other corals where should I place it?

Do Not place on bottom as if box falls, it could get damaged. You’d be surprised what happens in a cargo bay especially during turbulence and landing.
I worked for Eastern airlines and saw many disasters
Again using peanuts, have it centered and cushier so it doesn’t shift and get damaged especially being a meat coral
