Interesting read on coral shipping and handling

I read this yesteday and found it very interesting. I actually shipped zoos with the damp method this year and it went really well. I might try some other types next year.

I know some people really freak out to expose a coral/invert to air

I have had several corals shipped to me wrapped in wet newspaper. All have made it fine.
