We offer you a number of different safe payment options in our shop. All payment methods are based on prepayment. The payments are secured and encrypted during the ordering process by an SSL certificate. Choose your favorite from the following:
Prepayment Bank Transfer
When paying by bank transfer you can order immediately and simply transfer the amount to our account within the next 5 days. After your order you will receive a confirmation by e-mail including order overview, invoice amount and our bank account details. We will process your order as soon as we have received the money. Your order will be reserved for you for 7 days - enough time to pay by bank transfer.
A payment with PayPal is fast and safe, because PayPal has the advantage that your bank details are only stored there. This means that this data is not sent within the world wide web again with every new online purchase. If you decide to pay with PayPal in our shop, you will be forwarded at the end of the order process. If you are already registered at PayPal, you can log in with your user data and complete the payment. If you are a new to PayPal, you can simply log in as a guest or open a PayPal account and finally make the payment. We as a merchant will receive a confirmation immediately after the payment and can quickly get your order on its way.
With this payment method you will be redirected to Klarna - SOFORT Transfer, where you can transfer your purchase amount easily and safely with the access data from your online banking. A further registration is not necessary. The receipt of payment is confirmed immediately and we can process your order quickly.
Giropay is based on online banking with PIN and TAN and is a payment method offered by over 1,500 banks and Sparkassen. All you need for payment with giropay is an online banking account at a participating bank or Sparkasse. As merchant, we receive a payment guarantee from the bank immediately after successful payment and can therefore prepare your order for shipping immediately. You do not need to register to use Giropay.
You can also pay comfortably with your credit card. We accept both MasterCard and VISA credit cards. All order and credit card data will be transmitted to us only encrypted. Your credit card payment will be done via a payment form of the BS Payone payment platform. BS Payone is one of the largest payment service providers in Germany and complies with the PCI security standard of VISA and MasterCard. In that way you can safely pay online.
We reserve the right to postpone delivery dates, of course in consultation with you, if weather conditions (e.g. at temperatures > 30°C) do not permit safe live animal shipping. Due to the current corona situation, delivery delays may occur in France, Italy and Spain. We reserve the right to temporarily stop the shipment of fish and invertebrates in affected countries - of course we will discuss everything with you personally in advance.

Our promise: Live Arrival
All animals are cultivated, cared for and packed by us with the best knowledge and conscience. We promise that your ordered animals will arrive healthy and alive. Please also accept damaged parcels, as a return to us means the certain death of the animals. You do not need to worry in this case; we will repay for any unforeseeable inconvenience. However, you should first check whether the health of the animals is really affected by the damaged packaging. Despite all the care taken in preparing the shipment, it may happen that an animal dies during transport. Please immediately document the Dead-on-Arrival by taking photos. For the photo documentation, the dead animals must be left in the sealed transport bag. Please send us the photos by email within 24 hours after arrival of the animals to email@example.com. Further details can be found in the complaint procedure.
Live Animal - Packaging
The price for shipping includes the costs for reliable transport and safe packaging. The packaging includes the following:
- environmentally friendly thermobox
- sturdy outer packaging
- Labels for trouble-free animal transport
- Heat- or Coldpacks (depending on weather conditions)
- Double-walled transport bags for fish
- Special packaging for corals
- biodegradable packaging chips

We are registered with the central office in the LUCID packaging register and thus contribute to the disposal costs of recyclable packaging. We want to reduce packaging, especially disposable plastics, as much as possible and are therefore constantly looking for environmentally friendly alternatives.
