Hey guys!
I think it will be informative if we compile a list of local fish store still open for business during this unprecedented time. As a small business owner myself, I know times are tough. We need to come together and help support our LFS.

Please include
1. LFS name
2. Hours of operation
3. Address/website.

My lfs is Yo aquarium in Hollywood. The owners name is Billy & has been in business since the 80s, one of the few remaining mom & pop shops in the city. It’s an old pet store that also carries birds, turtles & hamsters to live food like black worms, crickets, feeder fish & mice. Their fish selection is pretty good & rotates every couple of weeks. Coral wise, it’s mainly softies & a few lps. All corals are wild so they sell colonies, a couple of frags but mainly colonies at a great price. His main display still runs a MH fixture from decades ago. I like stopping by because I get to admire the fish without someone breathing down my neck asking if I need help. He closes on mondays but is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10am - 7:30pm.

Thank you for this! Yes we need to support all the mom and pop shop right now. Even if its something as small as fish food, please consider LFS before buying on amazon. A little bit will go a long way right now

Are these stores allowing customers to go in or is it drive by service only?
