Shipping Cost

Shipping is a flat rate of $35. Orders greater than $375 ship free. If you already have an open order and are adding to it use the discount code AddtoOrder so the website does not double charge for shipping. If combined total of orders before shipping is $375. I will refund shipping charge from first order. 

Shipping Method All livestock ships via UPS, Next Day Air AM delivery. This is 10:30am or noon in rural areas. I pack your order at 6pm and drop it at my local UPS hub at 7:45pm. Corals are double bagged (6mil poly) and packed into a 2” thick solid EPS Foam coolers which sits inside of a corrugated box.

Shipping Schedule

Shipping occurs Monday - Thursday. Orders placed by 5pm eastern ship same day. Even after 5pm I can usually accommodate a same day shipping.


If reported delays due to inclement weather in the shipping route from Dayton, OH to you; I will contact you to work out a shipping date that gives the best chance for a on-time arrival.


If a loss occurs in shipping I have you covered. When I see other retailer’s that have a clause not to cover loss from shipping delays, weather, natural disasters or any other issue beyond their control, that is just crazy to me. A late package doesn’t mean there will be a loss. Due to the current shipping pressure on UPS and FedEx it is no longer uncommon for a package to arrive in the evening. Corals may arrive colder or warmer due to a delay and will need a bit of extra float time to come up to temperature

The only exception to guarantee is during shipping blackout dates

Blackout Dates

From Thanksgiving to first Tuesday in January UPS and FedEx is completely overwhelmed. I do not recommend shipping during this time. If requested I will ship however can not offer the guarantee if package does not arrive next day.
