    Yes Warr7207.

    I think it`s the most expencive shop in Norway.
    I will by my stuff at an other shop who gives me 15% on LS and 10% on hardware and stuff. Still think it will set me back a bit :whistling:... But i am lost to this salt water stuff:yeahdude:

    I will tray to get some photos from that other shop also.

    It is not a good idea to directly translate currencies, as the income in the country would also be in the local currency, and the conversion rate can sometimes make something look ridiculously cheap or expensive...let's rather try and express this in a "universal" currency such as the price of a bottle of Coca Cola.

    So, how many Cokes does that foxface cost?

    (By the way, the South African currency is called Rand...)

    R30 for a bottle of water, R83 (give or take) for a soweto peppsi at a bar. Beer is rather expensive here.

    but you make a valid point there hennie, but the cost of living is far higher here in norway than sa, id say close of 3.5 to 4 times, but the sllaries dont quite reflect that, about 2.5-3 times taking into account the stronger kroner

    i hear so, my non reefer enjoys diving, but they go down in winter (break through the ice sort of stuff!) as the water is crystal clear then. I missed a chance this year in november to dive with killer whales (they concerntrate after the herring in the western fjords.

    i am sure some guys will keep cold water marine tanks here, i will see if i can find out. there was a reef meeting this weekend but it was miles away, so i might make the march one:) i'll let you know
