    hi guys and girls


    i wanted to ask some of the pro's out there who i could contact regarding
    the building of a custom tank.

    who do you guys rate know their stuff as well as within the "not getting divorced" over it :whistling: factor taken into account...


    i been doing some research but battling a bit.

    from what i see Dorry's and Idol know their stuff.

    i just figured, out of the entire Gauteng , you have 2 options :eek:
    there must be more shops/guys out there that know their stuff..? or am i wrong?

    im looking at a 1500x800x650 size tank.
    think this is a good size or am i wasting my time?
    Quint has a pretty cool "cube"

    Yip - Dorry Pets or Idol Marine. You can also try TSR. Would not go to anyone else.

    Good that you are doing your homework as there are some shoddy tank builders out there. I know as I was the "proud" owner of one at one stage. I have never had a tank from Idols or Dory Pets but I have heard that they are top notch. TSR on the other hand I can comment on as I have one of theirs. They are all done with black silicon and are the best I have ever had the pleasure of owning. The glass thickness is over engineered on both the DT and the sump. I have one of their 600 cubes and the glass on that is Starfired 10mm rimless. They went as far as levelling it when it arrived and did all the plumbing for me.:thumbup:
