I’ve purchased from a vendor (Austin Aqua Farms) that ships coral this way and I love it! Hopefully more vendors will pick up this practice. Compared to the old bag and rubber band method, the corals arrive much healthier and seem to be in less shock. I like how the sealed bags are much smaller and easier to work with, plus the box always arrives with no leaks or mess. Thanks for helping to spread the idea.

Ziploc/Gladware/Rubbermaid containers are a better solution in my opinion. They may cost a bit more, but they provide a rigid structure in which to help protect corals. I've even seen some people fit some eggcrate inside and ship multiple frags in one.

Nice tip, thanks!
