Waiting on your delivery ? We Ship to Your Door! It's Real Easy!

As a general rule with our farm, if you place your order online by Monday @ 10am Arizona MST, we will do our best to get your order shipped to you the very same week by Wednesday. This is pending availability & weather of course. Orders into our farm by Sunday night have a better fill rate to ship the same week by Wednesday.  There is a delicate, tedious, timeline process to efficiently & properly package live tropical fish, so we must follow a weekly schedule filled with daily deadlines that allow us to ship 100’s of orders each week reliably, providing our happy customers with healthy quality livestock! Please & thank you for the extra consideration and understanding of what is involved to get a box of live fish delivered to your door safely.  We are a trusted source, so please be on the look out for your emailed tracking number when your order ships from our farm!  Please read your emailed customer receipt for details and helpful links. You can locate most helpful links at the bottom of any page of this site.  

DOAs (dead on arrival)?

Qualifying orders will get store credit to use on your next purchase! Read this link for details. Thank you!
