    hi guys, i kinda stole this idee from rory. thing is JHB is a wee bit far for me to get stuff from so i thought it a good plan to copy what he has done and just modify it for peeps in P.E i will do my best to maintain things as well as what rory is doing(realisticaly at least ones a week), but not sure if i will be able to do so without the help of mods. but anyway, here is what i have so far.

    aubrey sacks
    anything plumbing, i meen anything and good servace. and good prices comparatively.

    spar
    nori, marina mix.

    voltex
    anything electrical, they are the guys who suply the suplyers. i even get my floresint tubes from them( osram 72 ) servace is average but them being so much cheaper makes it o k.

    builders warehouse
    pumps, or any "normal" d.i.y. stuff.

    greenacres nursery
    bonzaai plant food(for those with phyto plancton this is the best)this is the only place i know has this stuff.

    ultimate aquatics
    the only LFS in P.E prices are a bit high but they definately sell quality stock. i also get my R O water from them at R15 for 25L

    fruit and veg city
    don't be fooled by the name. fresh and frozen seafoods, muscle, shrimp,crab,prawn,squid,hake, garlic. just about anything you may need for making your own fish food mix

    awsome news, i went to the new shop in newton park, 50 newton street. had a small problem with a pump being in the wrong box. lets face it, everyone makes a mistake now and again, its how you handle it after. they sorted it out and i got a slightly more expensive pump for no extra charge. friendly servace and good prices. out of 10, i'd give them a solid 17!!!
