I know that there was talk of combining the pet expo with IMAVSA at one stage but it did not fit the profile. I am fairly certain that there is a fish side to it however I suspect it will be mainly mainstream FW stuff available. i am sure you can predict there should be some marine equipment. If you see anything let us know and post pics, i am quite keen to see how big it is, layout etc.

I know of one pet shop from JHb that will be there but they are not a sponsor.

Do we even consider our reefs / marines as pets?

I'd rather say its a hobby - but it would be nice to see some reefers there - especially to inspire - heh sponsors

I wonder if this is where AKWA will have their new Seachem agency on show?

Henk, is AKWA a South African company?

I recently purchased a bucket of AKWA salt under duress. It was not cheap and the indicated weight was 3kg and actual weight 2kg. The shop assistant however did point out that it had been labelled incorrectly. I did a water change tonight, and this is the result. Any ideas... corals are all oozing mucous... a wee bit concerned.

Ouch, that doesn't look good, obliviously something wrong there. Good Luck and hopefully the corals handle it
