The above schedule is approximate shipping times for hardy plants. Orders with tropical plants are sometimes held longer due to weather patterns that we are monitoring on a bi-weekly basis. Shipping plants before zone appropriate voids our 2 week garuntee on plants surviving.


Tadpoles and Snails


We will ship plants and snails during the months of December, January, and February when we feel temperatures are mild enough so the plants and snails will survive in transit. If you request for us to ship plants or snails when we feel temperatures and weather conditions are unsafe, it will void our live delivery guarantee. As always, we will hold orders here and ship them zone appropriate.



Please note, if you would like...

your order to ship right away then leave us a comment saying, "ship now", or "ship asap", or even give us a ship date. The sky is the limit. (We ship Mon-Thursday. Fish go out on Thursdays only!)

If your email isn't getting through try giving us a call between 9am-5pm on weekdays and 10am-3pm on Saturdays.
