 Lower 48 of the United States and Puerto Rico, excluding Florida

Our current rates are $10.50 for Priority Mail, and $35 for Express Mail. These are flat rates and will not change depending on zip code or how much you order, unless the order qualifies for free shipping as outlined below. 

Priority Mail is a 2-3 day service. There is a $5 minimum order for Priority Mail orders.

Express Mail is usually overnight, but takes 2 days to some areas. You can check how fast Express Mail is to your area here. (We ship from 34994, but you MUST change the date to the next shipping date to get an accurate result). Because Express Mail labels cost more than the $35 flat rate we charge, there is a $25 minimum order on Express Mail orders. 

 We have 4 free shipping options open to customers outside the state of FL:

 Free Priority Mail -

If your order is over $50 after discounts are applied you can enjoy free Priority Mail shipping. Not all items can be shipped with Priority Mail though. Hermit crabs, chitons, limpets, conchs, turbos, urchins, zoas, crabs, shrimp, sea hares and certain macro algae CANNOT be shipped with Priority Mail. ANY ITEM MARKED WITH A * ON OUR WEBSITE WILL DISQUALIFY YOU FROM SELECTING PRIORITY MAIL, SO YOU WONT BE ABLE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS PARTICULAR PROMOTION IF YOU PURCHASE ONE OF THOSE PRODUCTS. Additionally you should see bold red lettering warning that the particular item is Express Mail only in the long version of the product description. Rock purchases do not count towards this threshold.

Free Express Mail-

If your order is over $175 you can enjoy free Express Mail shipping. Please do not choose this method unless your order is over $175 though. Express Mail is very expensive and we don't really run a very high margin so we won't be able to discount this service further than the already discounted flat rate price of $28 unless your order is actually higher than $175 after discounts are applied. Rock purchases do not count towards this threshold.

Quick Crews-

Quick Crews are our bundled clean up crew packages that ship free. They come with Priority Mail or Express Mail service, depending on their requirements. The free shipping service that comes with that particular Quick Crew will be mentioned in the product description, as well as the product chart here. You may add any items with your quick crew order and retain free shipping as long as those items are compatible with the quick crew shipping. (If you order a quick crew that comes with Priority Mail you will be charged for additional shipping if you add an item with a * next to its name to it. If your quick crew comes with Next Day service you can add any items and they would still ship for free.)

By default, our packages will ship "Deliver to Customer or Door". However, you should always keep an eye out for the package on delivery day - especially if you live in an apartment with a common mailbox or parcel locker where packages are delivered. You should arrange to be home to accept live packages. Packages are often left in mailboxes and around doors you may not frequently use. Please do not let it sit outside for hours or days if there are live animals inside. Abandonment and neglect will lead to losses. Please be pro-active.

 Items marked with a * require Express Mail.
