    Hi All,

    I am new to this site and enjoying every minute of it so far.
    So much to read about and learn.

    I got my 1st bowl with 2 gold fish when i was just 7 years old, and since then i ahve never looked back - and have just grown since then. I now have a fully custom built tank with canopy on a lovely mahoganny cabinet stand. It weighs ton. :lol:

    I have however recently re-located to cape town, and unfortunately my tank is in JHB :( and lying empty. wanna get it back up and running but need to get it here to cape town to start with.
    Please advise who can i speak to or arrange to get my tank up here.
    and what would the best possible way to get it up here. and if anyone has an approximate cost to get it up here..

    Regards,
    Cichlid guy

    Hello and Welcome to MASA. Maybe you should wiegh up the options of sending it down properly vs a new build at least you will be able to sell it to some Jo'burg guys

    Thanks for that Tony, My tank is valued at approx R20 000 as it stands there - i am being offered ridiculously low prices up in jhb - i dont mind spending a bit to get it up here as long as i get up here in one piece.

    thanks man
    i understand now y u wanna try send it.

    great size tank. i think it would work out cheaper to send it from jhb to capetown, rather than a new build.

    Welcome to MASA, hope you enjoy it here with us.

    The best would be to post in the wanted section that you need transport for your tank from JHB to CT.
    Phone courier companies to get an idea of the costs and also "move companies" - sometimes they got some space on a truck open from someone else's move and won't charge you an arm and a leg to bring the tank along.

    Hope you come right :wave2:
