Cold Weather Shipping Charge: This must be added to each order that contains live snails or plants during this time of year. It includes insulation and heat packs needed for the live items. Click here and add it once to each order.
Hornwort: This floating plant is in most of our lighted tanks. It is a very rapid grower and has all of the positive characteristics of fast growth - which means it's removing nitrates and phosphates at a high rate. It's a water purifier. It also helps slow or eliminated algae growth.
We ship approximately 2 cups of plants per order.
"Caution, PLEASE READ": Generally they ship well in temps between 20 F and 90 F (your temps and ours).
Choose an appropriate shipping method when ordering. Priority Mail is generally faster. Do not order with Ground shipping if you are more than 500 miles from us.
Orders that arrive after 8 AM est, will not ship until the following business day.
Preferably, have them sent to a place where they will not sit in the sun or freezing temps. PO Boxes are good. Business addresses are good. Mailboxes outside are not a good idea unless you're sure to get them out right away. If they sit in the sun for a long time, they they can get too hot.
We have ramshorn and apple snails in all our tanks, and there will likely be snails or their eggs on the plants when you receive them.
