    Does anyone know what happened to Aquapet that used to be in Yeoville, I might be giving away my age but in the late 80's it was the only shop in Gauteng to visit and get advice.

    That's right,Wim was the Asian guy with the glasses and quite clued up although the undergravel system was the IN thing,either normal or reverse flow.

    Wim is the Afrikaans guy. Mark is the Asian guy. Mark bought the shop from Wim and the shop moved after a short while then eventually closed.

    Don't know what happened to Mark or if he is still involved in marines.

    I thought Vim was Dutch !!!!. He is now the largest wholesaler of marine live stock in the country. The Yeoville shop was amazing and many of us "younger" guys most probably started because of him and that shop.

    Mark bought the store and use to have the most incredible live brine shrimp. Pretty sure the shop is no longer there
