100% Risk-Free Live Arrival Guarantee:
Rainforest Aquarium, LLC (RFA) guarantees that the shrimp will arrive alive and well with your Shrimp Bubble Kit. To ensure the well-being of the shrimp during transport we line our shipping boxes with thick interlocking insulating foam walls and add cold or heat packs when needed. We ship all Ecosystem Kits and live shrimp orders Expedite via USPS Priority Mail and provide valid tracking numbers for all shipments. Orders will be shipped directly to your door. We strongly recommend someone to be available at the time of delivery to prevent the shrimp from being left outdoors, exposed to extreme temperatures.
