"moist bagging" techniques

Postby mopecula » January 27th, 2006, 12:13 pm

Has anyone tried to ship corals using the moist bagging technique? I would like more info on how to do this. I hear it is probably one of the better ways to ship corals. Any help would be appreciated.

I've only done it with SPS corals. I will wrap the SPS in a paper towel soaked with tankwater. I only recommend this during summer time though. Because there is no water to act as insulation, temp fluctuations is a lot more severe. I'm not convinced it's necessarily the best way to ship corals, but it is cheaper since water is most of the weight.
