Note about current animal shipping
Due to the now low temperatures, we currently only offer the shipping option DHL-Express for the benefit of the animals, in order to ensure that your new aquarium inhabitants arrive safely and as quickly as possible. The animals will thank you and we hope for your understanding ;o)

Notice on the delivery of live animals

We always send live animals in a double transport bag, an additional thermal bag and a styrofoam box. In winter, at low temperatures, we also use a heat pack into the styrofoam box. The above-mentioned packaging flat rate for animals applies. If it is too cold in winter (or too hot in summer) so that the animals would be harmed with a standard package with a standard delivery time of 2-3 days, we may only offer Express shipping for the animals' benefit. You will always receive information about this in the shopping cart before you complete your order. In general, we recommend our DHL express shipping for the shipping of live animals, as the parcel is delivered the following day after DHL is picked it up with us and the short shipping time of just one working day means that the animals arrive at your place as stress-free, gently and safely as possible.

Notice on the delivery of aquatic plants in winter time

In winter, at constant temperatures below 0 °C, we ship plants in insulating styrofoam boxes with the above-mentioned packaging flat rate for plants. At constant temperatures above 0 °C, there is no flat rate packaging for plants. Cold, but frost-free temperatures are no problem for the plants.

Notice on the delivery of Aquarium tanks / bulky items per Express

Due to the high volume weight, e.g. Aquarium tanks, Aquarium sets and other large-volume or bulky items can only be sent by us via DHL regular package. If you want to choose DHL Express shipping, you would have to remove these articles from your shopping cart and, if necessary, order these separately. You got a note about this into your shopping cart.

Packet delivery General

Please note that the delivery service (parcel service) is liable for a harmless delivery. Therefore, in the presence of the driver, always check the packaging for external damage and refuse acceptance if necessary.

Delivery to Packstation / Parcelshop / Preferred

Within Germany, we deliver standard parcels (no express) to a DHL-Packstation, DHL-Parcelshop or as a DHL Preferred Delivery, with optional selectable time option, storage location or desire neighbor. Please note that especially in summer time, it may become very hot in a packing station or a storage location e.g. in the garden and plants or animals can cause considerable harm. Claims for damages arising out of a lack of due diligence can not be considered.

Delivery on Saturday

Within Germany, our shipments (DHL package) are also delivered on Saturdays. Excludes deliveries to company addresses (only Mon-Fri). For express packages, a Saturday delivery is optional (standard: Mon-Fri).

Delivery of Aquarium Tanks

In the case of the delivery of Aquarium Tanks, we ask you to check the consignment for external integrity before accepting it and to refuse the acceptance in the case of audible glass breakage. After receipt, we ask you to inspect the Aquarium immediately for hidden glass breakages and to notify us as soon as possible by E-Mail or telephone. Only in this case we have the opportunity for a complaint with the manufacturer. Your claims for a perfect delivery of the goods against us remain unaffected by this.

Delivery of Animals and Plants

In the case of the delivery of live animals and / or plants, the customer has to make sure that these are handled with due diligence, even if necessary in the meantime required storage, and if possible on the same day in a corresponding Biotope (eg. Aquarium) can be transferred. Claims for damages arising out of a lack of due diligence can not be considered.
