I've ordered supplies online from Pets and Ponds and I'm very happy with them. I live on the west coast just up from Vancouver and it only took a week to get my stuff (filter and heater), which is how long they said it would take. And if I'm correct, isn't shipping free above $30? I'm sure my order was shipped for free and it was just over $30.

Well, I ordered a canopy and light for my 10gal from pets and ponds last week. It only took 5 days to cross the country to my town, but it arrived broken. The glass where the light sits was shattered. But I'm not surprised since it was shipped in it's original canopy box, no extra packaging, no padding, nothing. The glass section that broke was sitting against the bottom of the box.
Anyway, I called them and said to save me hassle, and them the shipping cost, I was going to get it fixed and I would like them to either reimburse me or credit me the cost of the repair.(approx $10) I had to leave a message so I'll see if they get back to me and agree to the reimbursement.

Sorry about taking so long to get back! Computer problems.
Anyway, a guy from pets and ponds called me back the next morning. He said since they charge so little, or nothing at all when you spend over $30, for shipping, they don't spend extra money for shipping by packaging things up with extra padding (???).
He said this is the first time they've ever had a canopy break, and I reminded him that it was shipped across the country! He apologized profusely and said that I did the right thing by getting it repaired. What they would have done was ship me a new piece of glass (I almost laughed--how many pieces would that have arrived in?) He said they would either take the repair amount off my credit card, or I could have it in credit next time I shop. I chose the second method.
So they did get back to me ASAP, and the man was very nice and apologetic. I was quite satisfied with their attitude, so I'll still shop there. I think the call was toll free, too (877 number), which is nice.

ps, the repair cost less than $5, and they installed it in case it broke again.
