    I don't know where to go in KZN. I'm in Cape Town now still. Will only be going up in a week or so. I've called a few places and pricing was crazy. Who do you recommend or are all store 1.2m over R1200?

    Apart from the tanks where can I have stands made?

    Sorry bud. That size is out of our league and is a standard size available from any LFS.

    Are you looking for collecting tanks? Best is plastic bins.

    If I catch 1 or 2 powder blues I want to put them in a decent sized tank that I can treat them in, I dont really want to put them in small holding bin.
