Shipping & Handling Charges

ALL ORDERS WILL INCUR A SHIPPING CHARGE OF $13.95. We ship to the United States Only.


FISH AND SCAVENGERS are charged an additional $5.00 per bag for special packaging and handling. Since snails are not packaged in with the fish, there are separate packing charges for a bag of fish and a bag of snails.

ALL PREFORMED PONDS incur additional packing and handling charges. We can provide an accurate freight quote for anything shipped via common carrier (truck). Actual freight will apply. For fiberglass ponds, you should anticipate at least $180.00 – $230.00 (for residential delivery) and the costs could range from $200.00 to $300.00 or higher depending on pond size and where it ships to. Anything shipped to a residence has an added fee for residential deliveries assessed by the freight companies. Please inquire about freight charges when placing your order. It is easy to get a freight amount by emailing us with your zip code, and which pond you would like. Customers within our immediate area can have in-stock ponds delivered from our store for a fee or pick the pond up themselves.
