    Hello everyone. I heard about Marine aquariums of South Africa and decided to join all of you. I have been watching the site for some time now.
    I have just purchased a Aquaria 2m Tank from Aquaria-SA.

    I have been dealing with the owner, Lawrence for the past 6 months and decided to finally go ahead and get a marine tank. Lawrence has been so patient with me and never pushed me to purchase the aquarium as I am a person that does not rush into anything. I also shopped around at a lot of the pet stores, but Lawrence has been advising me on the correct set up of my first tank. I wish to thank him for always tanking my calls and spending the time with me advising me which way to go. I hope it does not offend anyone, but there are a lot of shops that can learn from him. Thank you Lawrence.

    My nw Aquaria 2m

    Lawrence and his team started preparing for the set up late yesterday afternoon, as I have been very fussy on the layout of the rocks and wanted it to be different. When Lawrence started yesterday, the lay out looked nothing like the final result which, I was given today.

    My new 2m aquaria tank

    Lawrence and his team started early in the morning and fished the full set up and I was stoked the way they worked and the time they gave to me as a client. Lawrence kept on saying it is your tank, what do you like. Well, here is my new tank setup everyone . I will put more pictures as the tank progresses.

    I can strongly recommend them as well as their products.

    Well done and thank you guys.

    Really nice and that is a scape well done to Aquaria. Are you going to keep a reef or fish only?

    i think its a lovely scape, in my opinion i think it may be a bit too much as tank looks crowded with rock only ,also i would uses deferent lengths to create maximum placement spots as from what i see the tops are shadowing over the bottom rock and finally,those look like ordinary beach rocks???

    but the tank itself,WOW,looks like space age setup.indeed what im aspiring towards:thumbup:

    i would have done same as you did with the pvc piping(old trick) but just made the scape bit diverse,instead of straight up

    bare in mind this is only my opinion:blush:
