Tony has prepared a nice little tutorial about how to send your zoa's using a heat pack and poly box.
Having read some threads it seems there are people that are not 100% sure how to use this method so read closely
Thanks to Tony for taking the time to put this together.
Requirements needed for shipping
1 poly box
Heat pack (24 or 36 hr)
Postage tub http://shop.reefcult...-swap-products/
Brown packing tape
Tools ( scissors)
Put 2 or 4 holes in the poly box to allow heat pack to continue to work. Being that the poly boxes are a very good fit it would starve the heat pack of oxygen and stop it from working.
Now take your heat pack still in its package and count 5 sheets of newspaper by the crease and cut around making an envelope.
Take your posting pot and measure around a flat piece of polystyrene and cut out a circle from it so that it fits snugly inside the pot then put a hole in the middle of the polystyrene ring as this will hold your frag firmly upside down in the pot.
Now place the frag plug in hole in centre of polystyrene disc fill tub with tank water place disc into water and close the lid. At this point it is advisable to tape around pot lid in order to prevent leaks.
Place pot or pots in poly box and fill level to the top of the pot with polystyrene packing making sure there is no movement of the pot you could also use crumpled newspaper or filter woolThen take some large kitchen roll fold to fit poly box this will act as a barrier between heat pack and pot (as below pic).
Now place the folded newspaper envelope on top of kitchen roll and then place in heat pack then fold over remaining news paper and put the lid
The lid has been Sellotaped around the seal to keep heat in brown tape used to hold things together and fragile tape around box
