Can I put a deposit on a fish so you can import/order it in for me?
Sure, send me your money I will save it for you!
Kidding of course.
Sorry, I do not take deposits on requested species that are not in stock or even species I may currently have being collected.
Unfortunately, what I order from wholesaler, breeder, or request to be wild collected, and pay for is often not what arrives, if it arrives at all. Also, many species are collected during specific seasons where it may be months before they are potentially collected again. So, taking a deposit on something that may never arrive is not a particularly good business practice (at least not for you!). Once it arrives, is correctly identified, and makes it through quarantine, it will be available. Check the stock list on Saturday evenings and order as soon as possible for the best fill rate.
