    Hey Guys and Gals,

    I have some sad news... mainly for myself, might be good news for others.

    Myself, the Wife and kid are relocating to the Western Cape.

    Yes the freezing sea where I cannot collect aquarium specimens :(:(
    But this a work and lifestyle related change that we have chosen for many reasons, work, schools, safety etc etc...

    I will be renting when we move down that side, which means for logistical reasons, moving a huge tank and livestock is just not gonna work for us:blush:

    I'm sure a lot of you have seen this tank in:

    Brent's 2,7M it has begun

    So I am going to start getting rid of Livestock shortly:

    I have loads of Corals and Fish..and equipment.

    It will all be first come first serve, and no chance of dropping it of guys, have to collect.

    Awesome man, Well as I mentioned to you in a different thread, Im ex Natal coast and have lived in Cpt for 12 years now and lived in West Beach for 5 years, so I can definitely recommend it.

    As for the Kiting, if you looking for a safe entry, I suggest a few weekends down at Langebaan, staying at Dimitri (awesome dude runs a B&B kite school)Kitesurfing Holidays South Africa, Cape Town or Friday Island Friday Island at Johns place (Super cool guy and activity adrenaline junkie)

    i am sure you will set up a tank in CT then the only difference will be you must get your live stock at the LFS ;)
