Experience the Zeo Box Reef Difference!

We are your premier source for premium high-quality sustainable coral in Australia. We are dedicated to providing you with the most unique, exotic and healthiest LPS coral, SPS coral, and Soft coral from Australia's best Coral collectors and our own in house aquacultured Coral range.

At Zeo Box Reef Aquaculture, we take pride in our commitment to sustainable practices, ensuring that every coral we offer is aqua-cultured or sustainably collected from the wild by following the Australian governments strict collection policies. We believe in doing our part to protect our oceans and reefs, while also providing you with the best possible product.

We take great care in selecting and inspecting our coral to ensure top quality and good health. We're not your typical aquarium store. Unlike others, we don't rush to sell coral immediately after acquiring it.

When coral is collected from the wild, it undergoes a lot of stress during its journey from the collection boat to the coral wholesaler facility, then to the local fish store, and finally to your aquarium. By the time it reaches you, it's already stressed and needs some stability before it can thrive in its new home.

All our corals undergo a conditioning period. During this time, we closely monitor them and help them adapt to aquarium life. We feed them daily, maintain perfect water conditions, ensure proper water flow, and provide optimal lighting for a minimum of 2 to 4 weeks. The end result is exceptionally healthy corals that display their true vibrancy and vitality.

We understand that purchasing coral online can be a bit tricky, so we're dedicated to making your experience as smooth as possible. Here's how:

1. High-Quality Coral Images: We use professional-grade digital cameras and lenses to capture stunning coral photos for the most accurate representation.

2. Detailed Descriptions: We go the extra mile by providing you with comprehensive coral descriptions, including measurements. You'll know exactly what you're getting.

3. WYSIWYG: Most of the coral we sell are "What You See Is What You Get" (WYSIWYG). You get the exact coral you see in the pictures.

4. Exceptional Customer Service: Our top priority is providing you with the best customer service. We're here to answer all your questions and offer expert advice on caring for your coral.

Can I expect the coral I see online to match what I receive in my order?

Shopping for live coral for sale online can be a source of worry for reef hobbyists, who can never be entirely sure what will arrive in the mail. Will it resemble the coral they saw online? While there is no substitute for an in-person viewing of the coral, we offer What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) corals to alleviate concerns. Our WYSIWYG corals allow you to preview the actual coral fragment or colony before making a purchase. We take pride in photographing all our corals under Ecotech Radion G5 LED Light fixtures. We use professional-grade Full Frame DSLR cameras and lenses to capture the highest quality representation of the coral. We also provide multiple photos of the coral under different light spectrums, including full spectrum (white light) and heavy blue spectrum. We also offer size approximations for every coral in centimeters. This measurement is taken when the coral is fully expanded, providing you with a better understanding of the amount of space the coral will occupy in your aquarium.

How will my order be packaged?

Zeo Box Reef Aquaculture prides itself on being a leader in the industry for packaging and shipping corals. We have a meticulous approach to packaging methods to ensure that your order arrives in optimal condition. Our team carefully hand-picks and packs each order with great care. Coral fragments are placed in specially designed containers and secured using chemically inert foam floats. For larger corals, we use a double-bagging method and add activated carbon to achieve optimal water quality during shipping. To maintain the ideal temperature conditions during transit, we use thick-walled styrofoam boxes with heat/cold packs as needed. Our shipping options include door to door Star Track Premium freight or same day Airport-to-Airport delivery. Both options are fast and secure.
