    Hi okay price for the 120x75 in 5mm black =R20 and the 500x500 in 5mm black is R320 i cant get black in 10mm
    Its not my profession but i'm a jack of all trades and i work with it quite a bit i've fix broken skimmers back to new again, i bought a skimmer from a shop that someone had dropped it in the shop and it broke quite bad and the shop gave it to me for, lets say a REALLY good price:) and its been in my 1.2m tank for sometime and works 100% :thumbup:
    I know that a lot of the stuff we use in our tanks is pricy and i'm not one just to through money away i'd rather try fix it, and i've got all the special glues and things that one needs for that, and a great little works shop.
