I’m sorry this happened. What types of coral did you order?

It’s really going to depend on many factors whether they make it and some species are more sensitive than others. Crossing my fingers for you!

I've had some come in with the skin blistered off after a 6 hour on time shipment. I've had some come in after a 2.5 day shipping flub up come in alright. It's hard to say until you get them. Video/photograph everything to send to vendor.

Torches and Hammers are terrible shippers. Hammers are the worst.

I hope your corals the best of travel!
Some vendors prep for delays. I hope yours are those as well.

Been there too many times. So much panic and stress. Its all about if the coral is toching the plastic.

With proper packaging they aren’t. That’s terrible packaging in the picture. Just negligence.

Just looked at your tracking again and see it has left San Diego. It’s still going to make it tomorrow. Don’t sweat it.
