    I've bought a couple of stuff from Dorry Pets before!
    And I'm always very satisfied with his products, service and prices!

    what shop do you go to?

    if you haven't already you should try exotics in boksburg, very nice selection but a bit on the pricey side...

    there's also animal kingdom in pretoria and jo'burg but last time i was there their marine section was a bit depressing...

    hey guys

    im driving up to joburg today for the weekend, and am contemplating visiting a few shops if I get the chance. Im staying in lonehill, are there any decent places around there? Durban only has one decent marine shop, would like to see a bit of variety. And if I see something cool that would survive the 6 hour drive I just might get myself a prezzie :)

    just make sure its the last place visit before leaving for home and carry an empty cooler box to keep the bagged fish in - the should be ok keeping their temp constant - and go the extra time when acclimatising the coz of the long trip - happy shopping!

    Definately make the trip to idol marine, well worth it (Midrand)

    Exotics is also worth a visit. (Boksburg)

    Pet Masters is great for hardware but they know k@k about LS. (Boksburg)

    There is a shop behind greenstone shopping centre that is new, they stock only fish for now but they are expanding. The owner is a relative of SIMS and is very open to knowledge about LS etc. Their prices are quite good too (Edenvale)

    Dan are you looking in anything in particular - coz if you open up a wanted list thread maybe some of the members have something you looking for or know which sponsor to go to - try it - you will be surprised you might not have to travel too long if you have an idea where to get what - maybe some members have some frags cheap cheap!
