You will receive the tracking number (on the same shipping day) before the fish are shipped out. Orders are dropped off at the FedEx Ship Center just in time before the shipment will be on road.
How do the fish travel?
The fish travel in plastic bags with clean water and pure oxygen. They are then placed in a Styrofoam insulation container which is protected by a cardboard box. We can also use heat or ice packs depending on the season. The fish can easily remain this way for over 48 hours. Because we want to make sure they arrive feeling strong, we ask that you be present when they are delivered to you. You should also plan for some time to place them in their new aquarium. Rest assured that all happy swimmers fly business class ;-)
What do I need to do when I receive my fish?
Inspect the box upon receipt. Make sure there is no significant visible damage to the box.
Open the box and inspect the fish. This is where you need to see if any are DOA. If there are any DOA please take pictures in the unopened bag.
Next you want to float the bags for 5-10 min. DO NOT OPEN the bags. DO NOT PUT water into the bags from your tank.
Place a net over a bucket and pour the fish into the net. Place the fish directly into your tank. DO NOT PLACE any of the shipping water into your tank.
Leave the lights off for several hours to let the new fish settle into their new home.
Do not feed until the fish look happy and active. Catfish will be more active with the lights off.
What should I do if I don’t receive my order confirmation or shipping info about my order?
If you will not receive your order confirmation, shipping info or something went bad with your order please email us at and we will do our best to help and find a way to make it right.
What if I receive a dead fish?
bioAquatiX has worked to improve the packing of live arrival, (we are still working and doing research to improve the packing of the fish), however there are too many factors that influence it and unfortunately we cannot control what happens to the shipment during transit. Which make it impossible to guarantee 100% lives arriving at any destinations, with any shipping service?
If you receive any dead fish (DOA), please don’t write a review before getting in contact with us. Just send a picture of the unopened bag containing the dead fish at and we will do our best to help and find a way to make it right. Fish will be replaced with the same fish on your next order or on our next shipping day, or we can refund you for the loss.
