Refund/Guarantee Policy


ALL PURCHASES ARE FINAL. In the event that a cancellation is requested before the purchase has been pulled for shipment, we can offer a 100% credit for 12 months. 

LIVE GUARANTEES (after purchase)

We do not guarantee any livestock purchases. We go through extended efforts to ensure our livestock is the most healthy possible. We will never knowingly sell a sick or injured livestock. We treat all fish and corals with preventative medications upon arrival and monitor daily for signs of health. Unhealthy specimens are not offered for sale, but are instead treated accordingly. All systems are regularly cleaned and purged of contaminants. These are some of the most delicate animals on the planet, so we cannot guarantee their health once they leave our care.


If you are shipped corals through our website, we guarantee live arrival. We use specially designed packaging to ensure your livestock arrives in the best possible condition. This may mean that we will request to cancel or delay a shipment due to extreme weather or acts of God.

Requirements for DOA guarantee: 

  • Buyer MUST BE AT LOCATION to receive delivery (not doing so voids DOA coverage)
  • We must be contacted with clear, designated photographic evidence within 4 hours of posted UPS delivery time
  • We must receive clear digital photographs of the coral both in and outside of it's packaging as well as an overall photograph of the shipment.
  • We may request additional photographs or, in some cases, to send back the specimen - DO NOT DISCARD of any corals or packaging until DOA has been confirmed by us. If we require specimen be returned, we are not responsible for shipping costs.

Fulfillment of DOA guarantee: 

  • In the event of a confirmed DOA, you will receive credit good for 12 months for the amount that was paid for the livestock item(s). If your purchase was discounted due to sale or other promotion, the credit will only be for the amount paid. 
  • We cannot guarantee the same item will be available again or for the same price.
  • No refunds or credit for shipping fees.
