When the night-time temperature HERE is forecast for 50F or higher, I will start to ship 2-day.

Ordering Fish & Plants

Minimum order is $25.00 of livestock.

Fish/plants are not ordered using the shopping cart system.  Due to the compactness of the shipping boxes I use, I cannot always combine fish and dry goods orders.  Shipping is by FedEx or Southwest Airlines (freight collect).  Shipping and Handling charges are described below.  Once we have settled on the total I will send you a PayPal invoice to pay, or we will work out another form of payment.

Price List

Here is a spreadsheet view of the price list.  The picture and information links work.  If you would like to download the spreadsheet and use the integrated ordering system which tracks your total for you, you may use the link at the bottom of the viewer:

Please use the Excel spreadsheet order form to place an order, unless your computer cannot open that application.  The spreadsheet is interactive… fill in the yellow box with the number of fish you want, and the spreadsheet will keep track of the totals, and your earned discount.  Discounts are based upon whole-invoice total, and start at $100.

If you do not have Excel on your computer, a free reader can be gotten here:  EXCEL READER

The PDF price list is NOT interactive.  If you cannot use the Excel spreadsheet, simply email me with the items you want, the number of each and I will figure out the totals for you.


 Orders under $100 will ship for actual cost of shipping + $5 (to offset packing materials).  Orders over $100 use the shipping/handling rates listed below.
