Vaquatics values the live stock we culture. At this time live coral and fish we carry can only be delivered locally unless special arrangements are made.

We will do our best to ensure that the items the customer purchases are shipped as quickly as possible.In the event that the carrier has delays, which is out of our control, we will inform you of the delay.

Shipping rates will be determined when the cart is ready to check out unless choosing overnight shipping for anything other than coral. If you wish to take advantage of our discount policies with specific carriers please feel free to email us and we will do our best to get you the discounted rate and email you with what that total would be for same day shipping. 

We currently only ship in the United States. Special pricing for Alaska, Puerto Rico and Hawaii will be applied. Overnight Shipping charges will be applied if this option is selected as well as the special pricing. An example is $49.99 for standard shipping + $50.00 will be added to your order.
