    How does Pre-order work?

    Pre-ordering fish from Tropicflow is a simple process that can help you get the fish you want without having to worry about availability. When a particular fish is not currently in stock, but is expected to be available in the future, we will provide an option to pre-order it. Our team will then ensure that the fish is imported and delivered to you as soon as it becomes available.

    Customers can then expect to receive their pre-ordered fish on the next import day. This can be a great way to ensure that you get the fish you want without having to compete with other customers.

    How long do I have to wait for a Pre-order?

    Your order will be imported on the next scheduled import day. Tropicflow follows a monthly schedule for importing new fish.

    For example: If you place a pre-order in April, you can anticipate receiving your order during the following month, which is May.

    Will the fish I Pre-order be exactly the same as the one shown in the picture?

    Each betta fish is unique, and we make every effort to select the closest matching fish to your pre-order request. Hence, the fish you receive may have slight differences such as size and color saturation.

    Benefits of Pre-Ordering Fish

    • Pre-ordering can give you the opportunity to get rare or hard-to-find fish that may not be regularly stocked.
    • Get exclusive deals and discounts on pre-ordered fish.
    • Pre-ordering can save you time and effort, as the fish will be delivered straight to your doorstep once available.
    • Be one of the first customers to receive the new fish stock.

    Care Guide

    From Tropicflow with Love - Treat your Fish with Knowledge

    Moving into a new aquarium tank (home) can be a shock for any creature, but for fish, it is particularly stressful. Not only will a new aquarium tank be completely unfamiliar for your new fish, but the water will likely be of a different quality. Subtle changes in water temperature, pH, quality of water, and other factors make a huge difference in your fish’s life. To keep your fish safe and healthy, there are certain measures you should take step-by-step when introducing fish to a new aquarium tank. Here is a process of how to make an easy aquarium to introduce a new fish:

    Precautions

    • Talk to an expert at the fish store or to a veterinarian to make sure the aquarium fish species you are adding will be compatible with your existing aquarium fish species.
    • Make sure the fish you are adding to your aquarium tank are the proper size for their new environment. Research the species and make sure it won’t grow too large for your tank.
    • Test your water quality before adding your new fish. Your chlorine level should be at zero, and your pH should match a new fish environment. 
    • Make sure your tank has plenty of places for a fish to hide. Objects, plants, and rocks provide great cover so that your fish will be less stressed.
    • Feed the fish in your aquarium before adding any new fish. This will make the existing fish less aggressive.
    • Before adding your new fish, turn your aquarium lights off. You may want to dim the lights in the room as well. This will create a less stressful environment.
    • Don't be surprised if your new fish is not happy and excited, they just traveled for a long trip to a new home, give them some time.

    Adding the Fish

    When you are ready to add your fish to the aquarium, you should follow these steps:

    • Take the sealed bag that your fish came in and float it on the surface of your aquarium’s water.
    • Allow the bag to sit for 10-20 minutes, then open the bag and add a cup of your aquarium’s water to it. Reseal the bag and let it float again for another 10 minutes. Slowly add your aquarium's water to it, the key is patience.
    • Repeat the previous step until the bag is full. Then, you can use a net to transfer the fish from the bag into the tank. Make sure not to pour any water from the bag into the tank.
    • During the transport, the fish may be shy, heavy breathing, color-changing, swim on the bottom, or hiding. It's will be back to normal after 1-2 days, don't be panic

    After this, your fish is free to swim around and explore his new surroundings. Leave the lights off for a few hours as your fish adjusts, and make sure to look out for any signs of aggression in your fish population. And don't feed a new fish for the first 12-24 hours.
