DOA Policies

We cover DOA (Dead on Arrival) for live items only in following conditions

  • 100% DOA will only be covered while shipped by flights.
  • 85% DOA will only be covered while shipped by bus and train.
  • No DOA will be covered if shipped by courier/postal. We don’t prefer this methodology as its not a legal standard in India.
  • In case of DOA need a clear video of the packet where the animals have perished and that too within 3 hours of reaching the destination. If you collect the parcel after 3 hours and claim DOA it won’t be entertained. We track the arrival time of your parcel.
  • For DOA email a clear picture of the damaged or dead item in the original unopened shipping bag next to your packing slip. Please take a picture of the underside of the bag to show the dead livestock and also include a picture of the livestock outside of the bag in a container with the label on the bag present in the picture.
  • No DOA can be claimed if the animals die post releasing into your aquarium/environment.
  • Plants – If plants melt or rot while in transit, we will refund you or replace you with similar item. If the plants perish into your aquarium/environment we won’t cover that loss.
  • Any item that is sent for free or as an extra is not covered by our guarantee.
  • If you are missing an item in your shipment attach a clear picture of the items, you received in your box. If the missing item is an animal attach a clear photo of the animals, you did receive in their bags with their labels showing.

To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase.

Please do not send your purchase back to the manufacturer.
