    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 was at the House and Garden show in Durbz a few weeks ago. I was thinking it would have been a great idea to have Marine stall there.If im not mistaken, Northlands had one sometime back?

    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.
