    Hi ALL

    Really great to find yet another site to share and most importantly learn from others. In the prossess of building a 2000l system that I will be updating weekly.

    Loved the dsb thread on this sight.

    Welcome Bushman, I remembered your round tank and your heat issues etc. But it was still a real stunning tank with your piramyd rockscaping in the centre. Do you know Theo from Nelspruit Pet Shop??

    Yes the round tank, well its been two years and I want to go BIGGER. More water more stable although I have added a chiller and a lot more. The round tank aslo had some limitations for me persionaly. I will be gettinh rid of the round tank if anyone is itrested. The new tank will be costind me a bit but should end up being incredible.

    Yes I know Theo well, I tried to get him involved but he just never go back to me, I left message after message and no answer. It would help a lot dealing local but no luck there. He would have made good money out of this as I am spending big bucks.

    I grew up in the Lowveld and also worked at the Sabi Sand Game Reserve as a Game Ranger many moons ago. Met Theo about 12 - 15 years ago when he moved from Pretoria to White River and started a small Petshop. Bought all my freshwater stuff from him in those days and he also build me a 2500lt freshwater tank. But, like I said, it was many moons ago. Rememberd him as a very good friend and a very good Lfs.

    Last time I saw him was about 05 years ago at his new shop(then) next to Sonpark in Nelspruit

    Good luck with your tank build:thumbup:
