All coral is shipped in styrofoam insulated boxes appropriately sized for your order, with heat or ice packs as necessary based on the weather. We have a 99%+ survival rate shipping corals and have been doing it for decades!
Orders placed by 5pm will ship out the following shipping Day (FedEx & UPS shipments go out Monday through Friday for overnight delivery), but you can always pick your shipping/arrival day by simply adding the desired shipping schedule info in the comments on your order. There are things that happen that prevent us from making shipments on some days; Import Schedules, Staffing Issues, etc, it is livestock, so there is only a small window each day for packing and shipping each day that we’re comfortable with so as not to prolong the experience for your livestock, we will always reach out ahead of time to coordinate any changes to schedule and do our best to not let it happen.
This is the amount you need to spend to qualify for discounted or free flat-rate shipping on your order.
This threshold amount depends on the location in the US the order will be shipped to.
Bonus – Having a Detroit Reef club Membership reduces this amount, so you can spend less to receive a discounted or free flat-rate shipping.
