    I want to build a new tank after relocating to KZN.
    Any sugestions on who I could contact in KZN to make me a new Tank.
    I am looking for a tank of 2000mm wide, 850 length and 750 height in 12mm with a galvanised stand. Also happy to look at any second hand tanks of similar size
    Thanks
    Shaun

    I have tried both already.
    Northlands price was silly to say the and Eco seems really busy. I have been trying since the beginning of Dec to get Andrew to make it with no luck.

    Yip December and Jan were very busy for me with tank set ups as well as suppliers closing for the holidays. Things are still busy but if you are still keen for me to do a tank and stand I will try make a plan. Could you please forward the email or pm where we spoke previously? I don’t have it any more. Thanks

    I would suggest having a chat with Leigh from ReefInmates.

    He has been very professional and prompt in the quoting and planning stages so far.
    I will keep you all posted as to the quality of the build and final product.

    LOL, yeah 150km round trip, it is a small tank (a 600 ) cube. So it is not even worth the petrol to go to Durbs. I will just make it myself if I can't find anyone in PMB.

    Yeah, cool.

    I was thinking 60x60x50, in 6mm or 8mm glass, I'm gonna need a stand as well. Will send out a sponsor request.

    Very kind of you to say so Alan and Calvin. :)

    I think Shaun should be in good hands, the fact of the matter is I kind of let him down by not getting back to him fast enough. Sorry about that Shaun, I wish you knew what life has been like for me lately!!! No excuses though, I should have phoned you or something. Hope all works out nicely for you. Cheers AC

    Thanks Calvin, that is much appreciated but I will only be up from the 15th - 23rd for now, I may have to come back up again later. If you can do a mid week thing that would be great, if not , no sweat, I can free up some time in the morning on one of the days, I can't do a weekend as my Mom comes out of hospital on the weekend then the next weekend I'm flying back.
