Hey i'm wondering if anyone can help me out with pricing etc.

Want to build a tank:
Display 50cm x 50cm x 50cm
Sump: Not sure on dimensions, one that holds around 50L

Any idea?

Will have to investigate that further. Leslie - i'm kind of looking for more of a ball park figure at the moment to work out a budget

difficult to say, you are probably looking at R400 for glass if done in 5mm.. and then cost for about 2 tube of silicone (R35 per tube)

this is tank only braced top and bottom.. i have a .600 cubeout of 10mm i want to part with for R700 if you are interested in something already built but thenshipping comes into play..
