    Hi guys

    My first post YAY!

    Anyway i am looking at getting into the Marine Aquarium game. Previously had Tropical fish like Oscars etc...

    Ive been looking around at places to buy a decent sized tank and variety of live stock. Best I've found is Hillfox for tanks and VIP pets in Northgate for live stock. I have tried Lifestyle as well - not so great variety.

    Are there any other places i should look ?

    Cheers!

    Hey rakabos, welcometomasa
    Have a look at the "For Sale" forum, some really nice deals in there on used (but good condition) setups. Seeing that you just starting up, it's a good way to save... Enjoy your stay!! :thumbup:

    Rakabos, firstly welcome!

    Check the for sale threads, you will get a much better deal than buying new, tanks lose 60% of their value once they are delivered, much like a BMW

    Sterlig is near the McDonalds in Witpoortjie/Princess

    Another option is Jungle Aquatics in the Little Falls Nursery

    Hey and welcome to MASA!

    Hahaha jip , jungle aquatic is having a little problem with their shipping at the moment( actually all the pet shops are having problems thanks to FIFA). For the best fish and tanks etc, etc I would advise going to our sponsors (Pet stop, Idol marine, Dorry pets,etc) You can try making it a days outing and visit all the shops( that's what I did:lol:).

    Yes, yes they are, but deffinetley worth going there. They have amasing advise and they are very honest. Their prices aren't bad and they are very friendly. Just a few weeks ago I visited my aunt in Roodepoort and my father and I went down the sponsors list in PTA and JHB and we wen't down all of them. I think it was half an hour ride to the closest sponsor from there.

    A Beautiful place!
    Welcome to MASA, glad you joined. Before taking advice from Petshops, please read the link in my signature on starting a marine tank, you'll get a lot of info and will know what they talking about and if the equipment is needed, etc.
    Take your time and go visit the sponsors, you won't be sorry ;)
