Shipping Policy

All live items are shipped by FedEx through Priority Overnight Service, Monday- Thursday and usually arrive by 10:30am EST. Certain remote areas are delivered later in the day.  We use specific packing means necessary to ensure the safe arrival of your live coral. Standard shipping for North and South Carolina are 19.99 for Overnight Delivery. All other areas are 29.99 for Overnight Delivery.

TRSC tries to avoid shipping on Friday. Due to the immense amount of packages shipped for the weekend and the unreliability of most postal institutions to adhere to shipping schedules. This coupled with the fact that some mail institutions do not deliver Sunday and if a delivery was “missed”, Monday would be the earliest delivery date for some. If you HAVE To have something shipped Friday, then please let us know in your order and we will try to ship Friday at the latest for Saturday delivery. Saturday Delivery is an additional charge that we cannot control. We cannot guarantee that the delivery will be by 10:30 AM but we do pack our corals to survive temperatures of 40-60 degrees for up to 48 hours.


All photos are taken under ATI T5 bulbs using a combination of blue plus and purple plus bulbs. Some are taken under T5 and Led’s. Every effort is taken to display representative photos of the corals.
