Live Shipping

We offer 2 types of shipping for our Discus. The reason we only use these 2 services is that they have been tried and tested and been successful in transferring Live Discus to our customers.

For ease, we have integrated the shipping options available at Check Out for you. You can obtain an estimate from the calculator and it will automatically calculate the weight and shipping charges.

Toll Priority Next Day Service – As this is a next day delivery service, we do not offer DOA (Dead on Arrival) coverage and customers who choose this option need to agree to the risk they are taking when transporting live fish.

Air Freight via Virgin/Qantas Australia – DOA COVERAGE SERVICE
This service is a same day delivery service. We will arrange suitable time with you on shipment arrival at your closest airport and we provide you with an AWB (Air WayBill) number which you use to collect your fish.

NOTE: Perth, Hobart, Darwin and Launceston, you are required to have the right permit and arrange your own QT officer to check the parcel on arrival.

We will still attend to your orders even when the shop is closed.

Our Premium Live Fish Delivery Service – Dead on Arrival Coverage
OZ Discus are highly experienced in air-freighting live fish. All livestock are bagged in quality fish bags with Medical-grade oxygen. They are then packed carefully in insulated, foam boxes which meet Air Safety regulations.

We use special heat packs during Winter months to ensure the fish have a consistent temperature and are comfortable.

Orders are shipped to most major airports.

On receiving your payment from our Invoice, we will advise the airport collection details, AWB, Flight number and ETA.

Notes: You must be available to pick up your delivery from the airport at the specified time.

Livestock Shipping to Western Australia, Northern Territory, and Tasmania, requires a permit and quarantine procedures.  If you are unsure if we ship to your area, please contact us at info@ozdiscus.com.au to check and obtain a specific quote.​
