Fishes are subjected to stress during harvesting, stocking, selecting, packing and temperature changes. This leads to suppression of the immune system or loss of appetite, whereby fishes can become susceptible to pathogens and infections.
Adopting measures to reduce fish stress (i.e. providing first rate farm sanitation, water management, nutritional care, treatment of diseases etc) coupled with our pre-packing preparation (i.e. 24-48hrs observation, starvation, temperature control etc), we ensure that all fishes are in good condition for export before sending the fishes to our clients.
We will never risk shipping any fishes that are not suitable to travel. Besides, with careful selection, we are always looking out for good and better sources of supplies, ensuring that only the best ones are used and sent to our clients.
At many times, clients always think that with high density packing there will sure to be high mortality on arrival. At Trop Aquarium, we spend a lot of time in the preparation of our fishes for export - because we know that only having good fishes is not enough.
With our good and high density packing technique coupled with the good preparation before export, we always target to ship these quality fishes to all our clients with good landing condition (guarantee 95% live arrival), at good landed price (with the lower landing cost per fish) which are comparatively cheaper to sell in this competitive market.

Through our innovation in quarantine and fish feed, we bring out the best colour and disease-free fishes for our clients, putting them at the forefront of the market.

Since we are dealing with livestock, Trop Aquarium understands our customers' worries of the survival rate upon arrival of shipment. On this matter, Trop Aquarium promises 95% live arrival of fish. However, in any rare cases where mortality rate exceeds 5%, we are most willing to offer a refund*.
*In such cases, please kindly take photo of the fishes in the bag that are dead on arrival. This is so that we can better understand the landing condition of the fish, and make the required changes to packing in the subsequent shipments. A full shipment report (with photos) should be sent to us within 24 hours from shipment arrival. Claims for refund will not be available for unforeseen situations (such as flight delays), and refund claims will be deducted from your following shipment's invoice.
