    Return - 2000lph pump(temporary)
    Lighting - 6 39w t5s (2 10000k, 2 actinic, im still experimenting with lighting colour so i havent decided on the other two. i was thinking maybe one 14k and on purple

    Hi Keyaam - the best places I can think of, at the moment, is either ARB Electrical Wholesalers (Montague Gardens) or Eagle Lighting (Cape Town cbd - I think Long Street)....
