Terms of service

Term & Conditions for Purchase 

When having fish shipped to you it is important to plan accordingly so that your fish arrive in good health and with as little stress (to them) as possible. Please ensure your address is accurate and complete. A wrong or inaccurate address can significantly threaten the welfare of fish in transit and will void the D.O.A policy and guarantee.  Please ensure someone is at home to receive the parcel at time of delivery. Any fish that are returned to a depot or left on a doorstep will not be covered by any guarantee or D.O.A policy as this significantly increases the risk to the fish. Please ensure that fish are dealt with and released into your tank in a timely manner as this minimises their stress and risk. Always follow safe release practices (eg: floating bags to stabilize temperature and gradual mixing of water to avoid shock. etc) Any fish that arrive dead in their bags may be covered by our D.O.A policy if all conditions are met so please take time to familiarize yourself with what you will need to do in this instance as there are procedures for claiming that need to be strictly followed. We cannot offer any guarantee on fish once they have been released into your tank. There are simply too many factors beyond our control that can may cause fish deaths in a new or existing aquarium.
