    Hi Guys,

    My tank is up and running with water as of this weekend. Will keep an eye on it during the week, and monitor SG, PH and temp.

    I think i should be able to stabilise the above parameters by the weekend, so I would like get some live rock to start cycling it.

    I live near Alberton in the south of JHB, and so preferably will be looking for sellers or stores close by (willing to travel, but not to pretoria).

    Please let me know if you are selling or are aware of anybody that has some good live rock for sale.

    PS how do i transport this once i have bought it? Buckets with water from my tank?

    (mods, please move this to "For Sale" section if need be, i can't post in that section. Thanks)

    i have got about 10kg of aragonite sugar sized in my tank and 2kg still in the bag. Sugar sized is to small for the pumps i have so the sand gets shifted all the bloody time. i am going to buy bigger granules. so if you keen pm me. only thing is you'll have to wait till next month as i am in the middle of exams. so i won't be faffing around with sand right now:) and i have two pieces of rock to sell

    Hi Mike, i saw your post about the live rock for sale. I would have taken it, but seeing as i need quite a bit, i will be easier (and cheaper cause of petrol) to just get it all from one place. Thanks for the offer though, appreciate it.
