    Hi guys,

    would just like to introduce myself.

    Marty here from Stellenbosch.

    Im wanting to start up a system after a couple years of not having a marine set up.

    Will be searching the for sale forums to gather some equipment.

    Hello And Welcome

    Tank builder in Cape Town, sorry I do not know the guys that well down there.

    First, what size tank are you looking at? Idol Marine tanks tend to be the bigger size tanks and they are not cheap either. Cannot expect a Mercedes quality tank but expect a budget hatchback car price.

    Thank you.

    Luckily not looking for a hatchback.

    I managed to source some 25mm Acrylic. Might build a 1280(l) x 900(w) x 600(h) tank. I can go 1000 wide but that might be to much for me.

    Exploring options with overflows etc.

    Any input and advice appreciated.
