    Hi All,

    Looking to find out who can build a custom 2000 x 1000 x 700(h) tank for me - I'm in Pietermaritzburg. Any contacts of tank builders that do custom builds would be great.

    Hi there, also in PMB. Phone Hugh from Pick 'n Pet. He can do custom build and he also does marines ;)
    You can also phone Eco-aquatics, they're one of the sponsors.

    Thanks guys will give Eco a ring tomorrow, got pricing from Chris and Hugh already. Would like a third quote as the other two prices are worlds apart, will be interesting to see what Eco come in at!

    Just make sure they use the same thickness glass, some guys will be cheaper but the tank will not be as strong.

    hmmmm ok, I assume these guys should know what thickness glass to use? 12mm I suspect for 1400L?

    Hugh is a very helpful and decent guy, dealt with him a lot. Got a quote once from him and from Eco for exactly the same tank and glass thickness and the prices where the same. He once built a tank for me, did a excellent job!!!

    Yeah Hugh is great for local support in PMB, also dealt with him a long time now, he often needs reminding to get things ordered but its great to have a Marine supplier in PMB.
