    Hi All,

    My name is kobus and i have been doing marines for over 15years and i have just opened my shop

    Before we opened the shop it was a aquarium factory and we where one of the largest in SA!! +/- 350 tanks a day!

    I believe in doing it right the first time BUT WITH STILE!

    So we need some marine guys to get us going on the marines in the shop.

    Kobus

    Welcome to MASA Kobus. Nice to see you guys jumping on board, but to be fair to our other Sponsors, I agree to what Leslie is saying. Please contact or pm the bosses:biggrin: of the site and let them know.

    350 tanks is a lot, well done

    Guys while you are right I think we maybe misunderstanding him.

    Kobus can you clarify what kind of help you want?Do you need advice on how to go about setting up tanks or what?

    If its only advice you need then its cool,we can help,but please refrain from posting exact details of your shop and any sales related info on this site unless you become a sponsor then you are free to sell etc.Its not fair on the other sponsors that pay to have their details on the site.

    For now you don't need to be a sponsor if you want advice or help with ideas etc....

    Hi Kobus and welcome to MASA, great to have you guys on board. I see your first thread could have been mistaken for advertising. Please read through the rules as we do have sponsors that pay a fee to advertise on MASA and this in turn pays for the running costs. If you would like to sponsor the site please get in touch with me on a PM and i will send through all the information.
    If it is help you require then you are at the right place as here you will find plenty information as well as wholesalers that are all prepared to help you get started. Good luck with the new venture.

    Ja, I dont think he is advertising since he does not even give the shops name, so I dont see any infringement. He actually wants advice on what us marine okes want in a tank.

    So this what us marine okes want, Awesome tanks at rock bottom prices :p

    TX,

    Actually it's not mirrors its a special glass that we use for windows. Its called S10 Silver or stopsol silver. Like in the movies u will oftin see at as the 1 way mirror on a cop show. once put against a solid surface it will look like a black mirror. Very expensive!! about R420 /sq M I, also made a ceiling above the tank with built in downlites!! Very hard to do but since i do allot of glass at the shop it's worth doing something diferant!
