    Hi everyone,

    I have just got a marine tank, about two days ago. It is a boyu TL 550. I also have two freshwater tanks, one with cichlids and one with tropical fish. I am wondering where the best places are to buy fish for marine tanks, as I want to start looking around while I let my tank run for a couple of weeks.

    Perky Pets is good
    Also check out Sams Aquarium

    Both can be found on the sponsors page.

    The best place in Cpt is a matter of opinion, it really is a matter of price, service and quality, here is where I buy what:
    Sponsors:
    Sams Aquarium Bergvliet : dry goods & equipment
    Perky Pets Bergvliet: live stock and equipment
    Aquatic Vision Brackenfell: Dry Goods and equipment when I need something fast

    Non sponsors:
    Aquality Montague Gardens: equipment dry goods and livestock
    Emporer Aquariums montague gardens: livestock and equipment
    Anderson Aquatics Milnerton: Livestock

    Online:
    Jungle aquatics: dry goods and equipment
    The waterzoo: dry goods and equipment
    Reef aquatics: dry goods and equipment

    As mentioned, this is where I shop and categorized in terms of where I get the best price service or quality.
    There are more shops around which are worth a visit such as phuture lab, a ace whose name eludes me in Fishoek, and a shop in Northgate Islan whose name I cant remember.
    Take a morning, visit each shop and decide for yourself who seems to have the best quality livestock.
