We only source our wild fish from the finest suppliers. All fish are held a minimum of 48 hours before shipping. Our holding systems utilize copper treatment and the fish are dipped for flukes. We also medicate their food for internal worms. We will never knowingly ship a fish with a disease or parasite. Most fish listed on our site are in stock and ready to ship. Occasionally, we will need to order your fish, and hold them, before shipping. In the rare case this happens, we will notify you to make sure you do not wish to cancel your order.
