About Shipping

We realize that with the high cost of fuel and carrier service that it's getting difficult to obtain necessary live food to maintain our saltwater critters.

We have implemented new packaging methods to allow some of our live feed organisms to survive for 3-6 days in transit.

To this effect we are now offering a low cost USPS Priority service option for some small orders of live food cultures like amphipods, copepods, and macro algae. This service will not be guaranteed to arrive alive but if you are willing to pay for shipping again, we can reship if you receive DOA's due to failed service . This way we are both taking a gamble in using the USPS.

USPS shipping will be on Monday and Tuesday only.


You can continue to afford to feed live food to your reef tank and fish pets through these trying times.


We are the only company that is able to continue to supply you with live food organisms to feed your saltwater aquarium.


You can continue to save when buying Amphipods, Copepods, Feeder Shrimp, Mysid cultures and more!


We are the only company that has developed unique packaging methods which allow us to ensure you receive live healthy cultures despite delays in transit which are occurring more often.


Rest assured  we guarantee live arrival provided someone is present to receive the package and report any issues at time of delivery. Please report as detailed as possible upon opening the package, which helps us better serve you in the future.


Tracking will be emailed to you when shipped. We provide tracking so you will know when delivery will occur.


If you need delivery to occur on a specific day, please let us know your requirements.


We are very flexible when it comes to meeting your needs and providing excellent service. So please work with us and let us know if you have special needs for delivery. 


Live orders ship the following Mon, Tues, Wed and Thurs, following when we receive your order.
