Terms of Sale

Because we sell are living animals, all sales conducted through this website are final, and we do not accept returns under any conditions. Shipping costs are also not refundable under any conditions. 

We do offer refunds ONLY if a Buyer receives items that are Dead On Arrival (DOA), AND the Buyer documents their condition with the specific photographs described in our DOA Guarantee. Within 48 hours of receiving images documenting DOA items, we will review the images and contact the Buyer with our decision.

If we determine that the images show evidence that the corals were DOA, we will contact the Buyer and offer a replacement or refund depending on (1) the preference of the buyer and (2) the availability of replacements. The Buyer accepts all responsibility for the cost of shipping any replacement items if they choose replacements instead of refunds. 

No refunds will be issued for free items included in the order, or for items sent as replacements following a DOA claim. 

These Terms of Sale supersede any other agreements the Buyer may have with other financial institutions. The Buyer agrees to handle any disputes regarding their order exclusively through the process outlined in this document, and forfeits any right to dispute the sale with payment gateways including Paypal, Stripe, etc.
