So Do You REALLY Want to be Shipped "Ocean Fresh Marine Life" for your home aquarium?
That's easy, we don't think so, because we sure wouldn't. We take the utmost care to insure your livestock ordered is packaged perfectly and shipped as soon as possible, but we will never ship "Ocean Fresh" Marine Life!

So what makes Our Saltwater Marine Fish, Coral and Invertebrates So Unique?
We are the only online marine life dealer we know of that refuses to ship "Ocean Fresh Marine Life". All of Aquarium Creation Online's Marine Fish, Coral, and Invert's are Guaranteed to be Aquarium Conditioned for a period of no less than 14 days to as much as 30 days (depending on the species).
With proper saltwater parameters met, under specific aquarium conditions that allow the marine life we ship you to adapt easily to your home saltwater aquarium.

So here's why you REALLY Want Aquarium Creation Online's "Aquarium Conditioned Fish".
1. It means the marine fish we ship you are eating pellet aquarium food and/or frozen aquarium food.
2. It means whether they are tiny or large, their stomachs will not be pinched, because they have been fed well.
3.It means they will not be sickly and stressed when we ship them out to you.
4. It means their coloration will be the best it can be.
5. It means we've done the best possible to make sure that if their is going to be any problems, the problms will show up in our tanks and not in your home aquarium.

With Morning Deliveries We Reduce Livestock Stress Even Further During Shipping!
When shipping we reduce the travel stress on our aquatic life by having every order shipped for morning delivery (when available in your area), called Fedex Priority Overnight Air Shipping.
We do this because we do not want your livestock to be subject to the extreme temperatures of the Fedex delivery trucks for very long. Even though all shipments use actual thermal insulated containers with ice packs or heat packs to maintain safe temperatures, by using Priority Overnight Air Shipping we assure our livestock a safer trip by reducing the time in the delivery trucks by as much as 6 hours.
