Frequently Asked Questions

What is your Live Arrival Guarantee policy?

We guarantee that our fish will arrive alive. That means that you MUST be home to accept the package from the shipping provider.

All of your fish will be insured to arrive safely, if you receive your fish that are DOA (dead on arrival), please contact us ASAP to file a DOA claim.

To file a DOA claim, please snap a quick video of the expired fish and send it to livingwatergoldfish@gmail.com
Once we have approved your claim, we will work with you to replace your fish with a similar value.

Does my fish come with health guarantee?

Absolutely, we promise that we will never sell sick fish to our customers. If we find your purchased goldfish are not in perfect condition before shipping, we will contact you to change the shipping date to give them treatment. 

What is your live fish return policy?

We are sorry we do not accept returns for goldfish, all sales are final. We work hard to ensure that our fish are healthy and our facility is as clean as possible so that we can delivery healthy goldfish to our customers. Once a fish leaves our facilities we do not allow them to come back for any reason. We work very hard to avoid cross-contamination in order to maintain the health of all of our fish.

How long does it take to ship my fish after my order has been paid?

We ship most purchases within 3 business days. Shipping days are Monday – Thursday, we do not ship on Friday, Saturday, Sunday or within 2 days of federal holidays.
