Shipping Policy

Yes, we are here to CHANGE THE INDUSTRY. We are offering FREE SHIPPING on ALL US ORDERS* with NO MINIMUM. Yes, that's right. We are not happy with the current status quo.  That's why we are starting NO MINIMUM ORDER - FREE SHIPPING.  We figure why is it the customer's responsibility for shipping?  Because it's always been that way?  That doesn't make sense.  Your trusting us with your hard earned money, shouldn't it be our responsibility to get your order to you as safe and quickly as possible no matter the cost?


International orders have a Flat Rate Shipping amount of $49.99 on All orders.  Free Shipping is for All Orders inside the United States.

Some orders that qualify for Over $499 Free Shipping will ship UPS ground if they are overweight or oversized like aquariums, sumps, salt, etc.  Once you order something we make every effort to get it out of our warehouse as soon as possible.  It's yours, we don't want it sitting around anymore.  We will do whatever we can to ship it out ASAP.  If for some reason we miss the same day deadline, we will upgrade to 2-3 Day Air shipment at no cost to you.  Who wants to buy something and then wait around 2 weeks to get it?  Not us.
