Restricted Species List
Due to their sensitive nature, fish listed below are not covered by our conditional livestock guarantee. |
Animals on this list are either very difficult to keep in the home aquarium, or are highly susceptible to loss during shipping. These animals should only be kept by the advanced hobbyist or researcher. Customers requesting any of these animals waive any responsibility on the part of That Fish Place for dead arrivals or animal losses normally covered within our 14 day replacement period for unrestricted species.
- Beginner level aquarists or aquarists with newly established aquariums (less than six months old) should not purchase any species on this list.
- We are also not responsible for the existing fish in your aquarium or for fish sold as “starter fish” for new aquariums. Guarantee does not cover fish purchased for new aquariums (less than 6 weeks old).
- Weather conditions, new arrivals and other circumstances may cause items and shipments to be restricted at any time.
- Management reserves the right to exclude any items from the guarantee policy at any time.
This list is subject to change at any time. Any items not covered by the guarantee policy will be advertised on that item's individual webpage as well.
