    So when I get home today, I discover the reason for her veto'ing of my tank was because she had reserved the space it was gonna go for a large display case for my warhammer mannetjies. She had secretly scoured the antique shops to find one which is large enough to take my hordes of mannetjies.

    It's something I've always wanted, and importantly, needed, as my stuff continuously gathers dust on normal shelving.

    Only prob is, this display case only has four shelves, and they're a bit sad from years of supporting someone's book fetish. I need at least double as many shelves, so I was thinking glass shelves. Anybody know where I can get window glass cut to size in the Alberton/south/germiston area?

    I lurb my wife, she a honey! And getting a tank is fine!

    Mwahahaha I can just see it - instead of those kitsch little deep sea divers and skull caves and other rubbish I can have Orcs and Daemons in my tank.

    I'm thinking a 3x3x2' tank would be a lekker size. I like cubes a great deal.

    I still need to do measurements, but that's a very kind offer. 6mm would work very nicely!

    Ivan, the tank was on but then my wife vetoed it (she had other plans with the display case and the spot I had in mind for the tank). So now tank is on again, I will just have to get a sensible size and find another spot for it.

    Excellent idea! Glass tanks are heavy, I need all the 'advice' I can get! :)

    I'll do the heavy lifting, more suited for that, we will really leave the designing to the real women and not the pretend ones.:p
