General Shipping Information

We generally ship on Mondays and/or Tuesdays.
During winter, we may adjust shipping dates slightly to work around extreme cold temperatures.
Our homepage lists up-to-date shipping plans and order deadlines.

When you complete your checkout process, you will get an automated confirmation of your order.
Once we check your order and process it, we will send you an invoice (typically within 24 hours of placing your order).
If a payment is still needed, your invoice will give all the payment instructions.
Your invoice will also contain an estimated shipping date. 

Angelmania.net now ships packages with the UPS Air because of delivery delays by the US Postal Service during COVID-19.

Our default winter shipping method is OVERNIGHT/NEXT DAY UPS AIR, with LIVE ARRIVAL GUARANTEED

We will email you the tracking information for your package before your package ships. 

 

Overnight Shipping (Next Day Air)

Overnight (next day) delivery is the default shipping method in winter.
Next-Day Air shipping will get your package to you faster and less time spent in a box means less stress on your fish.
Next-Day Air shipping is a good idea, particularly in winter months.
Next-Day Air packages tend to have better climate control in transit than 2nd-day air packages. 

All adult fish and breeding pairs must ship with overnight shipping.
Free shipping is NOT available with adult fish or breeding pairs.

All international orders will ship with UPS International Air service at actual cost.
Free shipping is NOT available on international orders.
International orders are not accepted in winter.

 

Fish Pictures

Angelmania.net has great example pictures intended to represent the quality of the fish we sell.
Unfortunately, we can't possibly take individual pictures of individual fish that can be ordered.
We simply do not have the resources to take pictures of hundreds of fish every week. 
Our pictures are intended to show you an accurate representation of the fish we will ship you.
Our example pictures are generally of adult fish.
Read the description of the fish you are ordering -- the description provides additional details on the appearance of the fish.
As you know, no two fish are alike.  We do our best to provide you with fish that will grow into close examples of the fish in our pictures.
We DO provide actual pictures of fish being sold as breeding pairs.

 

International Shipping

International shipping is available to any location in the world from June 1 to September 30. 
Buyer pays actual international shipping cost.
There is no live guarantee on international shipments.
If you live outside the USA, please contact us directly to place an order.
All international orders must be paid by money order only.

 

Acclimation

You should be well prepared to acclimate your new fish to their new home. 
We have detailed acclimation instructions posted here on the website (see link at the bottom of this page).
We include a copy of the acclimation instructions inside every box of fish we ship.
We recommend you read the acclimation instructions ahead of time to be prepared.

 

Shipping and Extreme Weather

We ship in completely insulated containers with heat packs in cold weather.
When temperatures are very cold (sustained below 20 degrees), there could be a minor shipping delay.

We ship successfully year-round, even through very cold Buffalo, NY winters, with only minor delays.
We track temperatures for every order, paying attention to the night-time temperatures along the shipping route.
We also monitor other extreme weather that can affect a shipment, like floods, hurricanes, wildfires, etc.
We post our current shipping status on the top of our homepage.
In the event of a delay, we will reach out with information.
If you need to delay your shipment for any reason, let us know.
