Tiger Lily’s House of Fish guarantees live arrival. Live arrival is guaranteed on overnight, next day delivery – as long as they are delivered within the time frame specified by the shipping carrier and received by the buyer on FIRST ATTEMPT time-stamped delivery.

The Buyer acknowledges that if the livestock item arrived DOA, Damaged or in Poor Health, it is the buyer’s responsibility to take a minimum of two pictures of the fish or coral – in the original, sealed bag when the shipment is opened. Applicable photographs must be received by Tiger Lily’s House of Fish within 2 hours of the time-stamped package delivery. Releasing fish from the delivery bag without communication and photographs ends the “Arrival” period and also implies that the livestock received were in acceptable condition when they arrived therefore VOIDS DOA policy.

Tiger Lily’s House of Fish will not under any circumstance replace fish or coral that have died due to inadequate acclimation, poor water quality/conditions, incompatibility with new tank mates, inappropriate diet, or if they have been left in the delivery bags for extended periods of time.

Acclimation Guide:
Properly acclimating your newly arrived fish and coral is THE KEY to making sure they adapt to their new home quickly and safely. Proper acclimation can make the difference between a thriving, healthy fish and one that struggles or gets sick soon after arrival. We have developed these acclimation procedures for your benefit. Failure to acclimate your fish according to these guidelines will void our guarantee. 

If you receive a fish/coral that appears to be very stressed do not immediately drip acclimate. ALWAYS float the bags on the surface for 15 minutes with your lights off to allow them to “peacefully temperature acclimate”. Do not open the bags at this time.

After temperature acclimation, open the bag and carefully drain the water from the bag out into a bucket while keeping the fish in the bag. After most of the water in the bag has been eliminated, immediately add the fish to the aquarium. *Adding a small amount of YOUR aquarium water to the bag and acclimate another 5 minutes.  Then carefully add the fish or coral to your aquarium.  NEVER ADD bag water to your aquarium.

We recommend keeping your lights off for the remainder of the day to allow your new addition(s) to settle in with minimal stress. Generally, it is best to wait to feed your new fish until the following day.
