    Does anybody drill and build sumps in the Eastrand.

    I have a 4ft that I may have done. Weighing up the pros and cons and price compared to a HOB.

    Thanks.

    I haven't been there in many years but maybe try Exotic Aquariums in Boksburg... Think their number is 011 892 4785.

    @Rob13 if you havent been to Exotic in years then you're in for a huge disappointment. It is a shadow of its former glory and marine offerings are a tiny fraction of what they used to be. I asked one of the managers about this a year or so ago and was told that they took a few heavy hits on livestock and decided to cut back. I think the Benoni lfs in town would be a far better option for @FishxTank. Think its called Benoni aquariums but could be wrong.

    Sad to hear @red deacon. Have many good memories of going in there and walking into that big tank in the entrance before making my way to the back where the marines were.
