    This is actually a good idea for a thread, maybe very useful.

    come on warr you have most of the GPS coordinates plugged in lets log them here.

    I know of
    1 Broadachers
    2 Leaping Frog (very small and a little pricey so i skip them)
    3VIP pets, Northgate
    4 Hill Fox
    5 Yuppies for Guppies (not been there)
    6 Jungle Aquatics near little Falls (deep in a nursery so hard to find)
    7 Animal Kingdom
    8 Exotics ( out East)
    9 Moolis (Pta North)
    10 Dory's (centurion)
    11 Or else MASA forums (possibly your best bet if u have time)

    From http://www.marineaquariumsa.com/showthread.php?t=19

    Otherwise fine to discuss what's around...

    Please try and support the sponsors though because this forum is only possible because of them. (especially so after we upgraded our hosting)

    fair comments there, and indeed one gets a far better level of service from sponsors, although i must confess i had to hunt around to find marine places in jhb and often sponsors didnt have quite what i wanted. I would have been greatful fir the thread, even if its just a look and see of whats out there.

    i even get kicked out of a few of the places:) with pride i add!

    the only think is sponsors based in DBN and CPT cannot sell us livestock. Unless you want to go through the pain of airfreighting and waiting for your flight to land etc.

    Also nice to go window shopping :)

    Sorry

    Sorry, did not mean to act against the sponsors.

    Reason for asking the question is that I currently travel about 40 minutes to get to a shop to pickup my premix, was hoping their is something closer.:(

    Len, you are in the middle of all the LFS. The closest to you would probably be in Newlands or Northgate
