Dear Sea Dwellers,
SDC is happy to share our newest and coolest fish & corals with everyone from the hobbyist
to the Local Fish Store (LFS) through “SDC News”.

For the hobbyist, we recommend that you show and tell your favorite LFS about all of the goodies that you want from SDC.  They will be able to quote you pricing and let you know when their shipments will arrive.  If your LFS is not ordering from SDC then perhaps you can request that they do.  SDC has been around for over 20 years and has diligently worked to be the highest quality wholesale fish and coral distributor in the country, and happens to also be the largest! We also have the greatest variety and inventory as well as the best pricing across the board, which makes our competition cringe.

It’s simple, we buy more, get better pricing and pass it along to the LFS.

SDC gets in hundreds of boxes of fish and coral nearly everyday so our inventory is constantly changing.  For the most up to date daily news, check out our Facebook page (Click Here SDC on FB). We started out as hobbyists too and continue with that passion to this very day!
SDC has the largest team of Marine Biologists in the industry.   Our dedicated staff offers hundreds of years of experience and enthusiasm to bring the healthiest fish and inverts to the forefront for our customers.


Feel free to browse our website to see our top of the line WYSIWYG Corals in
“The Furnace” at SDC… Where the HOTTEST corals in the world reside @

Thank you for subscribing to SDC News.
We strive to continually provide the best animals at the best pricing!!






What to do if your 

shipment is delayed or lost



We want to remind everyone what to do if your shipment becomes delayed or lost.


Contact you SDC Sales Rep immediately to help expedite the shipping process and to help you with the process of doing a claim.

No matter if your shipment is two days late or a week late, it is ultra important to pick it up from the airlines so that SDC can have a chance to get a freight claim on your behalf.  Regardless of what the airline rep says, ONLY THE SHIPPER (SDC) is allowed to do a claim.

In most cases, shipments that have been in transit for more than 48 hours have a very good chance of receiving a claim.

Helpful hints… Request a claim form from the airline representative.  Get them to notate what the circumstances are with your order.  Notate if the boxes are damaged or leaking.  If they do not have a claim form then feel free to bring your own with you by downloading it from your airlines website.  If you do not have a claim form then write some notes on the airway-bill BEFORE you load the freight on your truck and ask the rep to acknowledge what you mutually agree on by signing and printing their full name on the airway-bill or the claim form.

The next step is to get the fish back to the store and carefully acclimate them.  Neutralizing the ammonia is the most important part of the process.  First, float for temperature acclimation.
Next cut open the bags and pour the fish gently into your buckets and measure the pH & ammonia levels.  Neutralize the ammonia and begin to drip acclimate slowly.

While you are acclimating you can notate the DOA’s on a copy of the invoice that we sent to you.

Please photograph the DOA’s which can greatly aid in our attempt to get your claim. This is best done by lining up the DO fish on the white Styrofoam lid that accompanies the box.

We will need you to fax/email the DOA’s along with the claim form, photos and the airway-bill as soon as possible along with any other useful information about the situation.

While every situation has its own particular set of nuances, this is a general guide of the most important steps.

In review…

-Never Refuse a shipment… No one wins and everybody loses.

-Contact your SDC Sales Rep immediately if there is some unusual delay.

-Get a signed document from the airlines (claim form or airway-bill) detailing the circumstances.

-Neutralize Ammonia before introducing a different pH level to the fish

-Send DOA’s, Claim Form, photos and YOUR Airway-bill copy to your Sales Rep.
Most of you will never have to deal with any of this but we want to make sure that you are aware of the proper protocol in the event of a claim situation.

Thank you all,

Your friends at SDC!!
