Your
Address

Delivery companies will not accept a package that is addressed to a Post Office Box, so you must enter a Street Address.
 
 
Your Telephone
Delivery companies will not accept a package without your phone number to call, in case they have trouble finding your street address.
 
 
Saturday Delivery?
Normally we ship on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday to arrive the next day. Optionally you can request a Friday shipping date to arrive on Saturday with an additional charge of $16.00, which you should add to your order, if you want Saturday delivery.
 
 

 
 
4. Order by U.S. Mail
Create a document like the example shown just above, and mail it to us. Click here for our mailing address. You will still need to arrange to pay for your order. Click here for more about how to pay us.
 
 
5. Order by Telephone
Call us and read us your order. We are ready to take orders from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, Pacific Time, Monday through Friday. Click here for our phone numbers. You will still need to arrange to pay for your order. Click here for more about how to pay us.
 
On your order be sure to include your name and street address (not a P.O. Box Number), your email address, and your telephone number, then the Quantity, Item number, and Description for each item as given on our Price List. Click here to see a page in our Price List.
 
Shipments to an address in the state of California are billed for sales tax, but shipments to an address outside of California are not billed for sales tax. There is one charge of $33.25 for Packing and Shipping for each order to one address.
 
You can order as many fish and as many different kinds of fish, frogs, crabs, shrimps, and plants as you want. You might order one fish, or you might order one-hundred fish. No matter how small or how big your order is, you pay the same amount, $33.25, for shipping that entire order.
 
We have many different sizes of shipping boxes, and we'll pick the right size box for your order. Some orders need only one small box, and some orders need several large boxes, but the shipping charge of $33.25 is always the same. Click here for more information about shipping.
 
 
Special Requests
When you order, you can always include Special Requests that you would like us to keep in mind, as we catch and pack your order.
 
For example, you might include a Special Request for a particular color for your fish, like a Dark Blue Male Betta, or you might request that we ship 3 Males and 6 Female Platies, as shown above on the example order. Click here for more information about Special Requests.
 
We can arrange to deliver your fish on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday. We can also arrange delivery on Saturday for an additional charge of $16.00.
 
We've had some customers surprised that we charged them only $33.25 to ship their order, when it contained many fish of many types plus some plants and in some cases even more than one box. However big your order is we'll charge you once. Just $33.25 for as many boxes and as many fish as you order. We don't encourage you to buy more fish than you need, and certainly don't buy more than you can properly care for. But $33.25 to ship any size order keeps it simple for everyone.

Ordering & Delivery of Living Items
The Prices
The Prices are payable in U.S. Dollars and are always listed for ONE item, which is usually one fish, but it might be one shrimp, one crab, one aquatic plant, or one fish bowl depending on the type of item.
 
The Sizes
are listed in inches and refer to total length of that item and includes the tail, if the item has a tail. Each size is the size of the item for sale. The pictures often show items of a different size than the items offered for sale. Eventually an item may grow to be bigger, even much bigger.
 
Learn before You Buy !!
Near almost every item, that is listed for sale, there is a link, which includes more information about that item and often includes the maximum size. We strongly recommend that you carefully read about each item, before you buy it!
 
No Minimum Size Order
There is no minimum order size. Order as many items or as few as you want.
 
Where Do We Ship?
We ship to most addresses in the contiguous 48-states and to some addresses in Hawaii and Alaska, but we cannot ship outside the United States. So we cannot ship to Canada or Puerto Rico. We apologize for any disappointment this causes.
 
The Pictures
on this web site show items that have usually been sold. So we can't ship you the exact same item that you see in a picture, and the item that we ship may not look like the item in the picture, but we can usually ship you an item that is nearly the same.
 
Special Requests
If you send us a Special Request with your order, we'll try to send you what you request. Click here to read more about how to add a Special Request to your order.

You are also welcome to contact us by clicking here, but we usually do not know how to solve problems with PayPal, so it's better to call them directly.

So double-check to be sure your address is correct, BEFORE you make the final click to send us an order.

From the day we receive your order, you will usually receive your package within three to five of our working days, which are Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

The delivery companies also will not accept a package without your phone number to call in case they have trouble finding your street address.

Be sure your order is to a STREET ADDRESS and not a P.O. Box number. The delivery companies want a PHONE NUMBER, where they can call you at the time of delivery, in case they have trouble finding your address.

 About our Fish ...
Almost all the photographs and videos, shown on this web site, were taken by us of our fish in our aquariums.
 
Compare the healthy, beautiful, energetic fish in our beautiful aquariums to the fish in our competitors pictures. Their fish often look thin with clamped fins and poor color.
We buy the highest quality fish, produced by the best fish farms or caught by the best collectors of wild fish, then we take incredibly good care of our fish in our beautiful aquariums.
 
If you compare the pictures on this site to our competitors pictures, you can instantly see, our fish and aquariums are better!  ;^ }
Will the fish you get from us look like the fish in our pictures? No! This is similar to buying kittens and puppies that will change as they grow to become cats and dogs.
 
We stock and ship fish that are the ideal size to sell. Not so small that they will not do well when shipped. Yet not so big that they have become much more expensive.
 
The fish in almost all of our pictures were young fish like the ones we have for sale that we raised up, and you can too!
