i had a chat to one of the importers yesterday, they just brought in some oceanic blacktip reefsharks.. yes plz..

I'm really keen to see your progress on the 13K L system.
what size are they ? and how much ? me keen
eish again they were about 30cm and in the R3500-R5500 price range. The sharks were brought in either for ushaka or pretoria aquarium, i should have paid attention lol, i just went shark crazy..
wow thats hectic! do you know of anyone who can get me the sharks im liooking for ?
mies gona be bigger and better he he!! any idea where i can get sharks ?
Calvin, if I understand right your front glass is either 90 or 100cm high, out of 10mm glass. If your water level is anything close to these, your tank is going to explode one of these days.

Maybe I misunderstood your dimentions or something, if not its a miracle it hasn't broken yet.
how many SA guys are keeping sharks? could you post sum pics of these sharks..thanks..
hi bob
the actual viewing panel is just over 80 cm in reinforced glass so i dont think there is muck of a threat
