    I received distressing news from my local LFS that Orca Labs is no longer in business and all their products will be discontinued. I use the bio cubes and hope this news is not true.

    Can anyone confirm or deny this information?

    I can deny this info as I know someone in CT who has just received a consignment from Orca directly and have knowledge that further products are being released.

    I believe the agent for certain parts of SA has changed.

    Can also confirm that Mark Nel @KillerWhale is hard at work developing new products and quite inundated with biocube orders from across our borders.
    Actually spoke to him and on the phone this weekend to find out who the Cpt agent is, as I will be needing to refill after all this time!

    Could you let me know who the shop is that is spreading this. Immigration is on the cards...YES! That is due to some very large contracts with some of the biggest players coming up in the EU. The company is expanding...not closing down

    I will be appointing a distributor here in SA, but, I have some news for you Bendor! Phospha-Guard GFH will be back on the shelves very soon. In fact, they are in the solar dryers as we speak. I was caught there here the facility was not large enough to produce for international market and SA. I have now extended that facility and improved the formula. I will also be launching the STEALTH reactors very soon. A massive improvement on how the reactors work

    Good news! I hope the Stealth reactors come in small sizes as well. Looking forward to seeing it.

    I would actually like to say thank you to all for the overwhelming support I have received in the country. Be advised, when I do leave, there will be no price increases. This will be a condition that the new distributor must accept. Also...you will always be South Africans...just like me. I will take your e-mails. Admittedly, I have been very busy the last while and have retracted from MASA, but, this is due to all the work that I had and still have. This part about me going out of business is the competition trying to take chances and wishing that I would go out of business. I can't wait to see their faces when AIR-STRIKE and STEALTH get launched in the next few weeks.

    Just don't forget your roots and your loyalest fans this side of the sea!
    You revolutionized the industry! So expansions were always to follow!
    Great job!
