    Hi All

    Please can someone tell me where in the sandton area or westrand area is someone that can drill a 10mm glass?

    I got home last night to a very pleasant smell, the smell of the ocean, sadly for some strange reason my tank(Old tank) base cracked :eek: and yes, almost half the tank was on the flour.

    Luckily I have a spare Base and just need it drilled.

    Any body?????

    Thats the thing I am not sure, all I know is I got home and more than half the tank was drained on the floor, this was quite late last night, so all I did was drained the rest in to drums and tried to setup a rescue tank , I will go and do some investigating tonight when I get home.

    Got a pic of how is the base crack? Perhaps you can repair it by siliconing another glass over the crack.
