Hi Animal - try Northlands Pets close to Makro in Springfield Park. If you go onto their web-site you can get directions there.

I believe in the Gateway shopping mall there's a LFS called Julie's Pets as well.....

thanks, i also need some advice on my DSB. I was playing around with the idea of taking some moist sand home to put in my sump for the DSB. WILL IT WORK????? the tank i bought is a matured tank + - 8 years, however i struggle to get all the waterquality to standard. it is a concern to me as the tank consists of corals, fish and 300kg + live rock.

Hi Animal - yes - it CAN work, BUT, you will HAVE to oxygenate the sand by placing a power-head/battery operated air-pump in the container and some water - otherwise the bacteria in the sand will MOST LIKELY die off...
The die off will cause an ammonia spike.

Have you not perhaps thought of building an algae scrubber?
