    Hi nakoma

    welcometomasa

    You should be able to get containers at any "plastics" company. Whereabouts have you moved to? (you can set your location in you profile, go to "User CP" in the links at the top and edit profile....

    Hi nakoma! Welcome! First of all, where are you located? I am sure the guys closer to you could help you out. If you are in the Durbs area - perhaps ask Dean if he cannot possibly help out - or perhaps "sunburst". I think that they might have some decent equipment.....

    Otherwise - what about 25 litre plastic drums/containers?

    Good luck, and tell us more.... show some pics of your current tank/s....

    Whereabouts are you? If you're in DBN I'm pretty sure we could get a couple of the local boys to help you out one weekend.

    You writing in caps as if to say I need glasses or something :lol:

    I dunno, I suppose we could but don't like to force people to do things they don't want to do. Better to have a choice than be forced to do something, no? Besides, some people like to be mysterious :D

    Don't forget the very nice people dressed in white that feed us our porridge, I really like those people, they are very nice to me, but sometimes they shout at me when I dribble my porridge onto the floor, then I don't really like them anymore.
