As we get ready to resume normal shipping January 8, you're going to find a big, beneficial change which we're excited about. We will begin shipping ALL orders using two day shipping; which will be free for orders over $65. This change will also enable us to ship Monday, Tuesday AND Wednesday. Our new same-week shipping cutoff will be Wednesdays at 2 PM Central time.

So now you'll receive your orders faster, and orders placed a little later in the week will still ship the same week. We're so excited to continue to serve all our amazing customers and supporters in 2024!

Dinkins Aquatic Gardens is a small business run by my wife and myself (mostly my wife!) that focuses on live foods for your reef. We currently offer phytoplankton, three species of copepods, and rotifers.

We focus on providing a quality product with concierge-level customer service and a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Your emails and Facebook messages will be answered within minutes in most cases - you'll never need to fill out a help ticket and wait days for a reply.

Come visit us at http://dinkinsaquaticgardens.com!

Product Spotlight

Live Phyto Blend
- Feed your corals and your microfauna with our blend of six different species of live phyto to provide the optimal nutritional profile for your reef. You wouldn't feed your kids exclusively one type of food - why would you feed your reef only one or two species of phyto?

Reef Snacklebox - Three species of copepods and a generous helping of rotifers feed your corals and finicky fish. The Tigriopus, Apocyclops, and Tisbe pods will also colonize your refugium and rocks, cleaning up the detritus that gets stuck in hard-to-reach areas.

Snacklepack Combo - Maximize your tank's biodiversity by combining a 16 ounce Reef Snacklebox with a 16 ounce bottle of Live Phyto Blend.

We also offer other combo packs on pods, as well as single-species copepods (Tigriopus, Tisbe, and
Apocyclops).

Shipping

Shipping is free on orders over
$60. We provide an ironclad live delivery guarantee. We also offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee - no hoops, no forms, no B.S. You will be satisfied, or you'll get your money back.

Reviews

I've collected some of our reviews into a single thread for your perusal. Buy with confidence - all of these people did!

Sustainability

We are shifting to 100% recyclable and biodegradable shipping materials, with recyclable product bottles as well. Now you can feed your reef without worrying about styrofoam and other packing materials ending up in a landfill! Read more about it here.

I ordered from them in 2023, was well packaged, and on time for a fair price. Loads of communication along the way and afterwards. The service is worth supporting a small business like this. Product was good too. Definitely would order again.

Thank you all so much for your patience as we paused shipping during the holidays due to extreme UPS delays (from all the Christmas packages). UPS has finally just about cleared their backlog of packages, so we resume shipping Monday, January 8!

We're still taking orders for shipping next week, so if you've been holding off on ordering due to the shipping pause, here's your chance to get in an order for delivery next week!

We're committed to being even better in 2024:

1. All orders over $65 (except berghia) ship with free two day shipping.

2. We now ship on Wednesdays too, to provide fast fulfillment to even more customers.

All orders will be delivered by next Friday. Not everything will ship out Monday - some orders will ship Tuesday and Wednesday as well. But all orders will be shipped with two day shipping so they arrive by Friday.

We resume shipping on Monday!

We do now ship all orders two-day, so we are adding Wednesday as a shipping day. You will likely get your tracking number Sunday evening, but your order might be shipped as late as Wednesday. All orders will arrive by Friday or sooner.

Just as a reminder in the extreme cold:

1. We use 1.5 inch thick biodegradable styrofoam boxes to ship ALL our products, no matter what.

2. We check weather before shipping and add heat packs as needed.

3. We use UPS two day shipping to minimize transit time.

4. We have a complete, no hassle, live delivery guarantee.

Hey everybody! We're letting our amphipod cultures rest for a week (we overharvested a touch last week). But we do still have plenty of fresh phyto and copepods to go out this week.

We'll be shipping Tuesday and Wednesday this week, as Monday is a holiday.
