Petco/Petsmart opening

So shortly after the whole COVID19 outbreak started and things were placed in lockdown, I set up a 33 long tank. Unfortunately, I have no plants or fish to go with it! Does anybody know is Petco/Petsmart still receiving things like live fish and plants amidst this lockdown even if I was actually brave enough to out to them and look?

My local Petsmarts and Petcos in Maryland have a couple remaining fish and plants in inventory, but the majority of the tanks are empty and have signs saying coming soon. However all of the nonchain LFS in my area are still receiving shipments of plants and fish, and have kept up their inventory levels. The shopping experience is "challenging" but you do what you gotta do to be safe and still live your life!

Why not buy plants from some of the members and vendors on here?

Yep, online sellers are still going strong! I actually buy most of my plants and fish on Ebay. Usually pretty affordable that way too!

I don't know about Petsmart, but my Petco just got permission to start ordering in limited quantities next week. No special orders and no idea how limited the list is going to be yet. I intend to peek over the shoulder of my aquatics expert when she goes to order XD
