    How about a "Sticky" dedicated to where we can source good DIY materials.
    I've lost touch with my old sources and now its a bit like finding needles in a haystack. Probably best to split it my major region ie. KZN, Gauteng, WC, FS etc

    Some of my sourcing questions include where to find:
    1) Egg grate

    2) What's the best grade silicon available in SA to build tanks with?
    I've seen the Bostik Marine at around R33.00 per tube but would rather spend more on using the best possible product available.

    3) Industrial lighting component suppliers that have Actinics, Metal Halides etc.

    4) pipes, valves & other plumbing fittings.

    5) Acrylic/Perspex sheeting

    6) Glass

    continue list below ...

    Yes! Sticky please! And mods - maybe this should be area specific?
