Handling time for livestock is one day for orders placed Sunday through Wednesday. Orders placed Thursday through Saturday will be shipped the following Monday.

We pack all livestock double bagged in insulated boxes with compressed oxygen and filter cubes.  Heat packs are provided as needed.

Combined Shipping Rates available for multiple items.

  • UPS Next Day Air costs vary based on distance, box size and box weight.  Rates start at $35. 
    Livestock is shipped out via UPS Next Day Air Monday through Thursday for next day arrival, typically guaranteed by 10:30 am local time.  
    Shipping will be delayed if overnight low temperatures are below 20°F at either departure point, shipping hub, or arrival destinations.  Shipments delayed due to inclement weather will be shipped as soon as weather improves.
  • UPS Ground available to most Washington and Oregon Customers.
    UPS Ground option is only available when 24 hour lows are above 50 degrees Fahrenheit and highs are below 90 degrees Fahrenheit at both departure and arrival locations.  It is only available if next day delivery is guaranteed by UPS.  Please contact us to inquire on and arrange this shipping method.
  • USPS Priority Shipping begins at $15 per shipment.  Cost varies based on quantity and species of fish.
    Priority shipping is available only when 24 hour lows are above 50 degrees Fahrenheit and 24 hour highs are below 90 degrees Fahrenheit.  These temperature parameters must be met over the entire transit route for the fish as well as departure and arrival points.  
    Priority shipping is not available for larger fish (3” and up for full bodied fish, 4” and up for slender fish).  High priced fish or species known to be sensitive during shipping will not be shipped via USPS Priority Mail.  The Wet Spot Tropical Fish reserves the right to decline USPS Priority Shipping.
    Priority shipments are sent Monday through Wednesday only.  Priority shipping does not have a guaranteed arrival date.  Priority Shipping absolutely does not include a Live Arrival Guarantee.  

  • Pick-up is available at our Portland Oregon storefront during regular store hours.  Please contact us to schedule a pick-up time and date.
    Pick-up orders must be arranged with Online Sales Staff before the fish are picked up.
    Fish will be pre-bagged and waiting at the store at the arranged pick-up time.
  • Please contact us for more detailed shipping costs and questions.

Live Arrival Guarantee Policy:

We guarantee live arrival on all same day and overnight shipments as long as they are delivered within the time frame guaranteed by the shipping carrier.  

DOA claims will be replaced by the same fish on the next order. No refunds will be given for DOA livestock.

Two clear photos of the DOA livestock in unopened shipping bags are required to receive credit.  These images must be received within four hours of package delivery.  Opening the shipping bags ends the 'arrival' period and, without photographs, indicates that the fish are acceptable in the condition they arrived. 

Shipping charges are not covered by the DOA Policy.

Payment Policies:

We accept payment via PayPal and all major credit cards.  Payments made via Credit card will be processed on the ship day.

We accept payment via cash or debit only if the fish are being picked up by the buyer at our retail storefront.  Online prices will only be honored if pick-up is prearranged.

Payment must be received in full before fish are bagged and shipped.  Fish must be shipped within two business days of receipt of payment.  Fish cannot be held with or without payment.  Availability of fish is not guaranteed outside of 48 hours after order receipt.

Terms of Sale:

All sales are final.

We do not guarantee the sex of any fish.

Fish are not guaranteed past arrival. Releasing the fish from the bag ends the 'arrival' period. 

Buyer is responsible for observing all laws regarding animal importation for their home state and for acquiring any required permits for possession or importation prior to completing transaction.  Buyer is responsible for knowing their home state’s laws for importation of aquatic livestock, including lists of conditional, restricted, and prohibited species.

We do not offer cash or card refunds.  All refunds will be issued as store credit towards your next order.  Credit cannot be used to pay shipping costs.  Fish and items paid with credit count towards the $24 minimum order.  

If your fish arrived and you are not pleased with how they arrived, please take a picture of the fish in the sealed bag and let us know as soon as possible.  Please do release the fish after photographing it or them if you intend to keep the fish as we want them to be safe and comfortable.  Releasing the fish from the bag without communication and photographs of the fish ends the "arrival" period and indicates that the fish are acceptable in the condition they arrived.
