    Hey guys,

    I'm building a cube tank and have just finished the tank, overflow and water testing - only to find that my domestic worker (I assume) wiped the front of the tank with a dirty cloth whilst it's been outside on the patio...:censored: So now there are scratches-aplenty...

    I didn't use starfire, just normal 12mm glass, but seeing as I have decided to rather replace then always feel frustrated for years every time I look into the tank, I decided to rather replace with 12mm starfire.

    Does anyone know a glass supplier in Jhb Northern Suburbs who a) sells starfire, and b) doesn't charge insane prices, like just about every glass supplier out there?!

    Thanks:thumbup:

    Thanks guys. I just need one pane: 700mm x 675mm...

    I saw an old post on MASA where someone said it might be cheaper to get it through Idol Marine... Is this (still) true?

    not sure. But yes, about 5 years ago, my quote from Idol for the glass was actually cheaper than Rene Turck. Best part, I picked it up myself from Rene Turck.

    @dallasg : Did you have something in mind?! I checked with Rene Turck but they are out of stock in 12mm starfire, and may only get more stock next week of the week after...
