Default Just curious...

Just before the pandemic shut many things down, I had decided to return to the hobby. I began collecting the items I'd need, even got one of my old tanks out of storage to revamp it, and started researching going bioactive. Now I have put everything on hold as I shop websites and find 'out of stock' or hear of shipping catastrophe's. So I am curious, how are others coping at this time?

Personal opinion - don't ship live animals right now.

Otherwise, go for it. Get your viv ready.

Agreed! On all fronts

I've been building vivaria during the lockdown, helps pass the time. Getting materials shipped to me isn't always the easiest/timely but I manage

I've been spending time propagating plants and gathering materials to build a grow out tank which I should be able to start next week. Also decided to start culturing springtails so getting that stuff ready too.

Yes, I have no plans to have anything shipped. I am also into tropical freshwater fish and am hearing lots of nightmares about lost and misdirected shipments. What has put the viv on hold however, is not being able to obtain supplies. Hydroballs, cork bark, sphagnum moss... so many things are 'sold out' from my trusted suppliers. I like to have everything on hand before I begin. I will get it done, just airing some frustrations and wishing I had made my decision to start again prior to March.
