    Good Day All

    I am new to the site so still finding my way around. I have been interested in the hobby of keeping aquarium fish since I was young. Started with the usual goldfish then tropical fish and then basic marine fish. I then stopped the hobby for a while due to business travels. I am now ready to go back into my hobby full time. I recently bought my own home and have a huge area that I want a custom built aquarium installed.

    I have been doing some research, but I am struggling to find a excellent acrylic aquarium builder in Cape Town. I am now looking at importing an aquarium from overseas as no one in S.A can assist me with a dimensions I need. Tank size: 14m (L) x 2.5m (W) x 3m (H).

    So if there's anyone that can assist me, please let me know. I'm also looking for a good stockist of quality marine fish and live corals/rocks. I know of Sams, but will never purchase by him EVER again. I have been to Elite aquariums, Northern Aquatics, Aqua H2O, Aquatic Pet City, Exotic Reef Aquarium, Panorama Pets and Palau Design Lab. O yes, and Hartlands Aquatics, is there any other place I can go to?

    Any feedback will be appreciated. Email me on lee1gw@gmail.com

    Thanks All

    Thank you

    Thanks David. Which Perky pets are you at. Would love to see if you folks can assist. I went to perky pets in Diep River about 2 months ago and one of the sales assistants there said they cannot assist me with what I needed, however they referred me to Elite Aquariums in Fish Hoek.

    Hi , only Head office does sales of Marine.

    You could have spoken to Shaheen , as i would have remembered that question...
    If its the Acrillic 14 meter job your asking about - we cant help , but you asked about livestock on this thread ?

    ( I'm also looking for a good stockist of quality marine fish and live corals/rocks. I know of Sams, but will never purchase by him EVER again. I have been to Elite aquariums, Northern Aquatics, Aqua H2O, Aquatic Pet City, Exotic Reef Aquarium, Panorama Pets and Palau Design Lab. O yes, and Hartlands Aquatics, is there any other place I can go to? )

    Fish and coral and equipment, we can help with that , but try chat to two oceans for the tank, they have had allot of acrillic work done for themselves so they may have a contact person / company for you.

    You would have to import the panels as" break bulk " through a clearing agent ect and assembled here.

    David, thanks for the advice. Was considering Two Oceans, will make a turn there in the week sometime. As for the panels I do have a contact in the States that has confirmed panels and installation for me. All I need is equipment and livestock, but if Two Oceans can assist and it works out a little cheaper, then I'll definitely do that.

    Once again, thanks D.

    hi and :welcometomasa2: to MASA @GStar

    you are planing a supper tank mate and I will follow your build with great interest.. what are your plans for filtration and lights? water changes?

    I just calculated that you tank will have a surface area of 35sqm which is the size of my house .. oh my word that's awesome.
