Due to the holidays we find that both UPS and FEDEX encounter many delays in overnight shipping. Due to this we will stop shipping all live fish as of December 7th, 2022. All orders received after December 5th will be shipped out after New Years (January 3rd 2023). Also there will be a general rate increase by all carriers end of this year. While the rate increase is 6.9% with all the surcharges we were told to expect increases of 10 to 13% over our current rates. In addition to shipping cost increases our styrofoam, boxes, bags, heat packs have all gone up from 25% to over 100% this year. We will have no choice but to raise our FLAT RATE overnight shipping for 2023. We will raise shipping by 10% and absorb the rest for as long as we can.
