DOA Policy

  • If in the unfortunate event that you have a D.O.A. (Dead on Arrival) coral or fish upon opening your box, please send WCF an email with a photo within 2hrs of delivery confirmation by carrier. After receiving the photos, we will advise what to do with the DOA-do not discard until instructed. If DOAs are confirmed by WCF and photos sent within 2hrs, we will issue a store credit for the DOA coral or fish. Often, we are able to replace the DOAs with the same or similar items. Failure to notify us within the 2hr time period will void any guarantees.
  • All prices at checkout stand.
  • All coral orders must have video of the unopened box being cut open, and the unopened bag showing the DOA coral.
  • We are not responsible for DOAs due to carrier delay.
  • No refunds, or refunds of shipping charges, will be issued.
  • If we are unable to replace your DOA with a comparable item, we will credit you for the full purchase price of the item as a credit at our store.
  • Please ASK any questions about our DOA policy before ordering if you are unsure.
  • WCF does not cover shipping with any replacements. Customer will be charged shipping fee for any replacement item due to DOA.
  • There is no guarantee on livestock during an in-store purchase once it leaves our front door.


  • No guarantees on color accuracy, for colors may slightly vary from WYSIWYG items due to your light fixtures, settings, camera lens, and tank environment.
  • No credits for any deaths that occurs after the livestock is removed from its container/bag, as noted in our DOA policy.
  • Our prices are subject to change. We do our best to ensure our products display the correct prices and product information, but if you notice an error—like a $1 product—it’s most likely a mistake. We reserve the right to suspend sales of incorrectly priced products until the correct information is established online. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.
  • In rare occasions, if a coral’s health is not doing well, we will not ship the coral. We will offer the customer the option to purchase or provide a credit.
  • All sales are final. No exchanges, NO REFUNDS.
