Within one business day of ordering your corals, we will contact you to set up a date that works to ship it to you. We ship out all corals on Monday and Tuesday every week. If you need us to ship on a different day, please leave us a note and we will contact you to set up a new day. If you wish to receive your corals on a Saturday, we require that you purchase our Saturday shipping product here.

We will send you via email, your UPS tracking number once your package has been shipped. We require that you are home and able to receive the corals at least within 2 hours of delivery. Dead On Arrival (DOA) rules apply to all shipments. If your coral arrives dead, you must send a picture to us at sunnysidecoral@gmail.com or text us at (801)-300-1228 within 4 hours of the arrival time. You must send us pictures of the coral inside of the bag as well as one out of the bag in good lighting. If it is washed out in blue, it is impossible to see what is going on. If your corals arrive dead and you comply with our DOA rules, we will give you coral credit for one year on our website for the amount of the coral.

How We Ship Our Coral

Every coral is packaged and handled with care to ensure that your coral arrives healthy. Every coral is placed securely inside of a small cup to ensure that the coral does not rub against the sides of the bag or get damaged. We then place the coral with the cup inside of a 3 mil poly bag filled with the correct amount of water for each coral. We then seal the bag with an Impulse Sealer to ensure that the bag is sealed airtight. This bag is then placed inside of a 1 mil poly bag to ensure that there is no loss of water if the first bag was to leak. 

Zoanthids may be packaged using a specimen cup instead of a 3 mil poly bag. This cup is then placed inside of a 1 mil poly bag and sealed closed to ensure that there is no loss of water if the specimen cup gets damaged during shipping.

After each bag and cup is labeled, they are placed into a 1” insulated shipping container to protect the corals from excess heat or cold. Depending on the temperature of the shipping location, we put a heat pack into the container to ensure the optimal temperature for the survival of the corals.

All our packages are shipped UPS Next Day Air to ensure that the corals arrive at your doorstep the following morning. Each package contains a coral acclimation card with our information on it.
