Shipping??

All I'm wondering is how you can ship a couple things for a decent price cause most quotes I get are around 50-60 bucks to overnight and I'm beginning to frag my corals and would like to share with AA soon

If it has to be there next day, it will be expensive regardless of carrier. 2-3 Priority mail should work. We've sent and received frags in the past and never suffered any losses. As long as the box and contents are packed well and the bags are thick enough to not puncture from rubble or what not, it should be fine. SM wrote the below for FW, but the same concepts apply.
