Terms and Conditions Regarding Livestock Orders:
At AquaSense we consider “Livestock” to be perishable items such as Fish, Shrimp, Live Plants and Frozen Fish Food.
*All livestock prices are subject to change without notice*
You can estimate the shipping cost for your livestock from the cart page without having to proceed to checkout.
Livestock Order Cancellation
We reserve the right to cancel any order of livestock in any event concerning the health, or stock levels of the livestock in question. In the rare event that a problem would occur, we will contact you immediately to inform you and issue a refund for the cancelled portion of the order.
All shipped livestock has a live arrival guarantee by AquaSense should anything happen in transit.
We try to provide the fastest possible service to our customers; we only use Canada Post Express-post shipping to ensure all livestock delivery within maximum of 3 days anywhere in Canada.
Canada Post will send you an email with your tracking number once the parcel is shipped. If a weekend or holiday will delay the delivery of a package, we will wait until the next appropriate day to ship.
In addition, if there is a foreseeable event that can endanger or delay the delivery of a livestock order, we will notify you and hold the order until it is safe to ship. These events include snowstorms, extreme cold weather (beyond a heat-pack’s ability to maintain a safe temperature), heat waves, etc…
We quarantine all livestock for an appropriate period to ensure good health. Guaranteed live arrival of livestock is limited to Express-post shipping only.
The customer is responsible for ensuring the livestock can be picked-up the same day as the delivery notification in order to maintain the live arrival guarantee.
For safety reasons, Canada Post will leave you a “card for pick-up” to be able to pick up your shipment the same day at your nearest post office. We do this so the parcel remains in a temperature control facility as much as possible for the safety of the livestock.

Returns and Exchanges on Livestock
* No exchanges or returns on livestock will be accepted.
In order to qualify for a store credit or refund, the customer needs to report the loss or bad condition of the livestock by contacting us through email and by providing pictures as proof within 24 hours of receipt.
Terms and Conditions Regarding Equipment and Hardware:
You can estimate the shipping cost for your equipment from the cart page without having to proceed to checkout.
Order Cancellations & Changes
For the benefit of our customers, we attempt to process orders as rapidly as possible. As such, orders may be sent to our warehouse for fulfillment soon after they are placed. Due to the handling, we will not be able to make any order changes or cancellations once they have reached this stage of processing.
Please review your order very carefully prior to submitting it, and if cancellation is necessary; please contact us as soon as possible to increase the likelihood that we will be able to stop your order before it goes to the warehouse for fulfillment. Unfortunately, we can make no guarantees that all orders will be successfully canceled.
