    Hi Guys

    Just been to see a company in Marine Building in the center of Durban, they have a beautiful marine tank in the foyer - Any idea who set this up?

    i think it was initially set up by northlands, then taken over by andrew cherry (eco aquatics)
    i think it burst and has since developed into a wicked tank......i have not seen it in over 2 years though

    Well I see it pretty much monthly. Its maintaned by Eco Aquatics (Andrew). Does a good job- some stunning equipment there as well. I think the client has finally given andrew the money necessary to turn it into something awesome.
