Anyone worried about getting supplies now?

Post by zexavrj1kc » March 17th, 2020, 5:51 pm

Are any of you worried about getting fish supplies, whether it be filter media, food, prime, etc. due to all of the stores closing? I checked on Amazon and it looks like the 2-day shipping has now basically moved to being atleast 4-8 days out (even with Prime shipping).

I am currently not too worried, although if one of my filters burns out, then it may be a different situation. I'm not too sure if in my state if pet stores are being classified as essential or non-essential (closed for business) - but with the spike of online purchasing, it should be only a few days before anything you ordered gets delivered.

Not that worried. I know Amazon is backlogging all items now so it’s probably easier to just order from Petsmart/Petco/PetsAtHome/LiveAquaria for some supplies than it has been before.

Some stores are even still open in regions defined as essential business only - so you should be good there.
