Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Products & Stock
Can I keep multiple bettas together?
Females can be kept together in what is called a 'sorority' provided that there is enough hiding spots when aggression levels get too much. Males cannot be kept together with either sex.
Are these the exact bettas I will be getting?
The bettas depicted in the pictures will be the bettas sent if purchased unless otherwise stated in the product description.
Please be aware that marble variety bettas (i.e. Koi, Grizzle, Fancy, etc.) can change pattern and colour during transit as well as over time. We cannot guarantee the pattern will remain the same throughout its lifetime.
Fin nipping during transit is an occurrence that can happen during postage. Please understand this is a risk with long-finned varieties.

What happens if I won’t be available to accept the delivery?
Live Fish deliveries will be left at your door if you are not home. Though it is recommended that you are there to receive them, the couriers will leave them due to the nature of the goods.
Dry Goods would require a re-delivery or pick up from depot. A card would usually be left by the couriers in these cases. Please leave a note if you wish to allow them to "Leave without a Signature".
My address is wrong, can I change it?
Yes, address changes have to be authorised in-person by calling the couriers.
Please be aware that address changes cause a 24-hour delay in deliveries.
Please ensure that the addresses are correct on check-out. Extended delays from an incorrect address and resultant DOAs are not refundable.
What time will you deliver? Why can't you contact the driver?
We do not have drivers and delivery persons of our own. We make use of third party services for this and the delivery times are much dependant on the routes the drivers take as well as their workload. As such, contacting the drivers is based on the companies discretion as they are not our employees.
