DOAS policy ...


The utmost care is put in to packaging our fish for delivery. We ensure that all fish are healthy and fit to travel. All fish sent out with courier will be 1 fish per bag, then double bagged, placed in an insulated poly box, with heat packs.

The fish are quarantined before we purchase, then again in our own tanks to ensure good health and quality. We should all know in the ideal world all fish should be quarantined after transporting before adding to established tanks with other fish. (Even from your local shop)

In the unlikely event of any DOA'S we require photographic proof of any DOA'S in the original packaging within 12 hours of the delivery, to be able to offer any refund or credit. We cannot accept any responsibility for deaths after fish are released into your water, unless in an established quarantine tank and not mixed with other fish. Postage costs cannot be refund or credited. This also applies to any dry goods damaged in transit.

If you are wishing to order from our import list or any "out of stock" items we will require a deposit or payment in full before we can reserve any fish or before we can order any "out of stock" items for you. (We will check the availability first before we require a deposit or payment in full)
