And we are ready to head out! 20+hrs and it'll be in the tank!

The aquarium shop put O2 in the bag and gave me a few more bags

After 12 mins in the tank, about 95% are open! Success!

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
Just to reiterate, Those zoas you have there were shipped wrapped in wet newspaper from somewhere in Indonesia, over night to California. Then they were shipped over night, either in wet paper again, or in a bag full of water with nothing more than air, to the LFS you bought them from.
I've shipped thousands of corals, fish, clams, and anemones to people all over the country in a bag full of water and regular air in a styro lined box with either heat or cold packs, depending on the time of year.
