Try Rene Turck, their service and workmanship is great. Contact Casey Gradidge. I paid approx. R2000 for my DT & sump glass. DT in 10mm sump in 6mm.

So finally got one bulkhead to fit... :1:

So here's what I have so far:
* Skimz skimmer
* Phosban reactor
* RO unit - need to add on inline TDS meter, pressure gauge, DI resin chamber.
* Reef octo ATO
* Jebao D3000 with controller
* Hailea 6510 for reactor
* all plumbing
* Seio M1100 and Jebao WP40 for flow
* DIY custom tank n sump

Next purchase is a a steel tube stand 50mm square. Any contacts for builders? My welder letting me down. Don't trust his engineers skills...

Looking for Marco rock and a few few pieces of LR. Not how how much I should put in my tank and sump? Any guidance?
