We only require deposit on very expensive fish or rare fish that we may not be able to sell if client was to back out.

We can’t guarantee our quarantine protocol fully as no procedure is 100% safe. Also we treat for very major common diseases. There could be many variables that are at play which can affect the health of your livestock.

We feed a 50/50 mix of frozen mysis and brine. We add fish vitamins like selcon and garlic guard to our food. Also in some cases we add frozen blood worms.

How do you recommend to acclimate?
Difference between Qt’ed Fish vs Conditioned?
Fully qt’ed fish have gone through all the procedures and treatments mentioned above and are safe to go into clients tanks. Conditioned fish start out just like qted fish and get prazi and metro treatment and then get put in copper but get sold without completing full 14 days in copper to people that may not want to qt or they have their own qt tank and procedure or simply want to take advantage of cheaper fish that has at least a head start into treatment.
How do we qt our inverts?

We place them in sterile tanks for 76 days. These invert tanks are completely fishless and only carry snails and shrimp.

When do you ship?

We ship on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday making delivery days Wednesday, Thursday, Friday.

Note: UPS sometimes have blackout days for live animal deliveries specially in high mail traffic days like Christmas and certain holidays.

What is shipping cost?

Shipping charges are $59.99 and free shipping over $500.

Restocking Fee

There will be a 25% restocking fee if the order is cancelled after we have acquired the livestock but if you like to postpone it or take a store credit we can arrange that for no fee.


In case of shipping mishap/delays, if you have added insurance we will cover your entire livestock but if there is no insurance then you will have to file a claim with ups yourself and wait for them to pay you back for the loss.
