    Try hobby shops, they use it for various applications. If they cant get, they will most likely know where you can get from.

    i got some from a place in maitland recently, they gave me an offcut which was more than enough for my tank and sump and VERY CHEAP.

    in maitland there is a big foam/material/upholstery shop called KEHLS, next door to kehls you go up the stairs and into this place that sells the more industrial foams and rubbers. or just go into Kehls and they will show you where it is.

    Hi guys, I've got a 65 x 65 cube, stocked & filled I'm assuming the total weight will be around +/-250kg. I've been to both the Sondor & JMP websites & have called JMP. I'm awaiting feedback as to which closed cell foam & type would be suitable for my tank, however could anyone here give me clarity? There's so many different types.
