SHIPPING DETAILS: Aquarium supply orders ship every Monday – Thursday via USPS, UPS Ground or FedEx ground, unless the customer chooses expedited shipping services. Note: Aquarium supplies are shipped separately from frozen food orders because the latter require special packaging for safety and temperature.

Returns: For aquarium supplies, we recommend contacting the manufacturer first on any warranty issues. Most manufacturers prefer to handle their own warranties and it usually results in quicker turnaround time for you. If a product does need to be returned to us, please call us at 855-237-0999 within 30 days for a return authorization number. Mark the return authorization number on the outside of the package very clearly. Items received without a return authorization number or after the 30-day time period will not be processed.

The customer is responsible for return shipping and insurance on returned items. For non-defective items, a 20% re-stocking fee will be assessed.

This category includes frozen foods only.

Similar to livestock orders, frozen foods are shipped via UPS Next Day Air Saver. AquaLocker.com ships livestock nationwide (only continental U.S.) year-round. All of the items in this category ship from California and Arizonia.
