DOA warranty conditions similar to Corals above.
Please note that acclimation of fish, after a lengthy time in shipping, is very different from when you buy them in a store and a couple hours later they’re at your home.
After almost 20 hrs in the bag, both the CO2 and Ammonia levels build up considerably, which leads to a significant drop in water PH.
This means you have to drip acclimate for 3-4 hrs, nice and slow, before adding your new fish to your aquarium. (That’s what we do too when we receive our fish!)
ALL SALES ARE FINAL! NO RETURNS OR REFUNDS WILL BE ACCEPTED. ONCE ORDER IS MADE, YOU HAVE UP TO 2 HOURS TO CANCEL IT.
IF DOA Claim is approved, only Store Credit will be provided for the purchase amount, excluding shipping. No Refunds.
What if my coral doesn’t look the same as the picture?
Corals may look different under different light spectrums, and different brands of light fixtures, if your coral looks slightly different than the picture, this may be due to the difference in lighting, water flow, water parameters or stress during shipping, etc.
Anemones are known to stress during long shipping hours, they may or may not darken/ fade in colour, exhibit a wide open mouth, and other signs of stress. They will need to be given up to 3-4 weeks to regain their original colours.
For the reasons above, we cannot guarantee the corals will look exactly as pictured in our tanks, and will not offer store credit for such claims.
Beyond the 2 hrs cancellation window, a restocking fee of $30 per item will be charged before processing the refund.
Any approved store credit must be used within 30 days of the original purchase date.
