    I just thought I'd share with all of you that a company in Durban called "GELMAR handles & fittings" has tons of black Den Braven silicone.

    It is very nice if we can find cheaper alternatives and even better if we save some money. I think I would personally feel more comfy to buy this product from Adriaan/Idol because he has proven he is using a very good product. Maybe I am to old to be adventurous but on the other hand should we not support our sponsors in appreciation for making our sometimes difficult hobby easier to handle?

    :lol:..yes I do..I find it's the best way of learning and besides, I feel kind of dumb when I can't answer any of the Noob questions, or questions in general, as my "knowledge" is limited to the "maintaining of my tank" only..:p So now I've decided to "Google" so when a Noob or someone in general asks about something, hopefully I can save him from buying, say..black sillicone from Pick 'n Pay..:p and also give him some info regarding the quality of certain products and he/she can decide which one they prefer and/or suites their requirements..:blush:

    Jokes aside. It took me weeks to find. Newbs, you CAN NOT use "any old" silicone. Make sure that it does not have any fungicides or poisons in it. ErratiC, much appreciated and about time someone handed some thanks out. ;-)

    @ gavster, which branch in durban as the one in Pinetown only carries the universal black.

    They do not stock the aqua black and they cant order for me either.

    I did call them , they only sell boxes of the stuff not individual tubes. They suggested i get gelmar to order a case from them but they are not willing as it is not a fast product line.

    Il probably give them a call and ask for stores that stock there brands maybe il get lucky.

    Out of interest..any reason why it should be Aqua Black and not Universal Black..? Is the Aqua Black for Marine use and the other not...?

    Correct Belinda, any silicone used should always be Aqua / Marine , others contain harmfull substances
