• Shipping Rates
  • Among The Reef only uses FedEx Priority Overnight for all of our saltwater fish, coral and invert orders.

    By using FedEx Priority Overnight, we make sure that our livestock spends the least amount of time in transit. All FedEx Priority Overnight packages are guaranteed to be delivered by 10:30am the next day. Marine livestock is extremely sensitive, and the faster we can get our livestock to you, the better.

    Make sure that somebody is home to take delivery of the package upon arrival. We cannot be held responsible for any livestock lost if a drop off is missed or a package is left at your doorstep for an extended period of time.

    Shipping Rates

    Orders under $249
    All orders of saltwater fish, coral and inverts that are under $249 are subject to a $39.99 shipping charge for FedEx Priority Overnight.

    We offer 100% free shipping on all orders of $249 or more on saltwater fish, coral and inverts. Items will be shipped via FedEx Priority Overnight.

    Larger Orders
    If more than one box is needed to ship your order, additional shipping costs will occur. Most orders can easily fit in our regular or oversized boxes, but there are cases when additional boxes may be needed. We will notify you before shipping your order if any additional boxes are required and what the additional fee is. You can either remove some items from your order or get a full refund if you do not wish to pay the additional shipping fee.

    Larger items like some sharks and rays require large crates that can only be shipped via air freight. These items do not qualify for free shipping and shipping fees will need to be paid when the crate is picked up from the airport.

    Free shipping on orders over $249 is applied to the first box only. Each additional box will be subject to additional charges, we will work with you on a case by case basis in these situations.

    Live Rock
    Due to the weight of live rock, shipping charges are calculated in the shopping cart. We try to give our customers the best rates possible on shipping heavy items like live rock.
