    I just ordered an Achilles Tang and it came to me all stressed out from shipping. I did the acclimation process and it died within a few hours. I texted him letting him know what happened how the fish was discolored and how it did not make it through the night. His reply was

    Morning, sorry to hear about the fish. I only guarantee live arrival. Once it enter a customer's system their are too many variable out of my control.

    It would have been nice to know his refund policy before I through out $300.
    I got no refund even after I bought from him before and no partial refund. Didn't even get to enjoy for a day.
    Don't buy from this guy. His business practice sucks... He won't be getting my business no more or ever..

    He is just looking to make money from the hobby..

    That's unbelievable, sad that someone could have so little regard for someone else's hard earned funds, but more so, a life!

    I would check the law on that one. Many states impose and enforce a reasonable warranty, regardless of the seller's policy. $300 is definitely worth a few phone calls.

    There are two different stores Reef corner which doesn't sell fish and The Reef corner which does.
