All shipments are handled via Fedex Priority Overnight shipping services which guarantees delivery by 10:30AM in most cities. Areas outside normal delivery areas of Fedex are guaranteed by end of day. Also if the package does not make it to its final destination because information was not received, no guarantees made by Austin Aqua Farms will be honored.
Any package MUST be accepted even if the shipment arrives late or damaged. If a shipment is refused or delayed by Fedex, no guarantees will be honored by Austin Aqua Farms.
Unless specifically stated, all livestock comes with a "Live Arrival" guarantee. However if a DOA does show up, a claim must be filed with Austin Aqua Farms within 2 hours of package delivery and a photo identification will be needed. DOA's will be fully credited minus any shipping charges. We will not ship anything unless it is 100% healthy but DOA's do occur from time to time and will be handled accordingly.
Shipping can add stress to coral which can cause them to change or lose color. It may take a few days to several weeks and even longer for different corals to color back up after shipping.

What we're about: After almost a decade of keeping saltwater aquariums I decided to take my love for the hobby to the next level and thus Austin Aqua Farms was created. With a "do it right the first time" philosophy only the best in equipment was purchased. Our ultimate goal is to provide you with not only the most beautiful coral but healthy coral as well. To accomplish this and ensure you get only the best, all incoming coral is dipped in Tropic Marin PRO-CORAL CURE while being acclimated to our system.
