Please include good photos of the deceased specimen, and please keep the coral in case further investigation is needed. Once we receive the request, we receive the deceased coral (if applicable), and we have confirmed your loss, we will issue a store credit.  The store credit will not include the cost of shipping.  We reserve the right to deny claims if in our sole judgement, we cannot confirm the loss.
