    Are there any reefkeeping magazines available in south africa? I have looked at CNA, Exclusive Books and other shops that keep magazines in East London, but dont see any.

    Thanks for the reply Dallas. I've never been one for reading magazines/books online or on pc, i think i am old school in that regard...like a good old hard copy. :p

    I have bought a few nice copies of the UK magazines, Practical Fishkeeping, and another new Marine magazine (can't remember the name now), from "PaperWeight".
    The copies are a few months old, but that's ok with me....

    :( we dont have a paper weight here, maybe my sister can find some for me in Cape Town and send them up. I dont mind them being a few months old either.

    The C Journal by Anthony Calfo is, I think, a quarterly specialist marine mag.

    We can get them up in JHB, I don't know about EL.

    I think any mag/journal by Anthony Calfo would be worth a read.

    The C-Journal is not even available in Cape Town, Bob....

    I think that South Africa NEEDS it's own ReefKeeping Magazine. I investigated it about a year ago. Went to talk to publishers everything. But, the financial investment is quite a bit to start off with. More than what I could get together.

    I have done all the homework. Anyone interested in investing?
    There are a few other people who could EASILY assist in getting a South African magazine out....
    We have MORE than enough of our own "guru's" in our OWN country. BUT, just to get this started.....

    Jacques i am involved with a geek publication and a web fundi, so lets get this going and make it web based and pdf, most like print, but we can print and bind and keep focus on web and e-media as the cost is lower....

    i am also involved with advertising, yip u want it i will find it, and lets go for it

    to give a good example for a local hobby mag, NAG new age gaming,

    also have experience starting and running online communities, started Incorrect syntax near ','. in 2000 and its going strong, a site for local game development for pc, xbox etc

    +1 from me

    also with web we can go international and flaunt guys like hennie, bob, adriaan, midasblenny to name a few
