My first order from penny was six leather corals, the packaging was great. all of the corals showed some color when i opened the box and after i followed the acclimation process listed on the invoice all of the corals opened up fully and began to show their true colors. Penny contacted me the day after the i placed my order and stayed provided constant communication up until the corals were delivered. i highly recommend buying from Penny, she has a great selection of healthy and affordable soft leather corals. i will definitely be ordering from her again. Thank you Penny! oh yeah, the corals were shipped all the way to California with no problems.
