    I rate a great way we can work together as the KZN Fish Club is to start helping each other out - just by letting others know what good deals they find throughout KZN, whether its fish or equipment.

    A good way to start is to start posting anything particular that you guys are looking for - I know for a while many people were keen for Keyhole Cichlids, but we hadn't heard of them for years. Guess who knows where to get some :blink1:

    Anyways, also keep an eye out for bargains for other users. Maybe if you see a good second hand deal, you could post it up on here (although no contact details or adresses - its safer to do so via PM).

    Cheers guys

    Hi everyone,

    Gordon here - new to this group.

    I currently have a 3 foot tank, but am looking to upgrade to a 5 / 6 foot one in the next few months.
    I'd like to buy the tank, stand and hood together, but I'm battling to find it at a decent price.
    Does anyone know of stores in the Durban area that they would recommend for this?
    I've visited Northlands Pets. They have some great looking Juwel tanks, but for R10k I'd rather look around some more...

    Thanks
    Gordon

    Thanks Kiazer. I haven't heard of them either though, and couldn't find them on the net.

    Jessie - thanks for the suggestion (I can't reply to your PM you until I have 10 posts). I have been checking out gumtree & JunkMail. No 5/6 footers with stands for sale in Durban, but I will carry on looking. I'm starting to lean towards making a wooden stand and hood myself. I made my current (3 foot) hood myself, but was hoping to avoid the pain again (I'm not exactly handy).

    Any other recommended pet stores?

    Hi FishCrazy,

    I'm still thinking about the overflow box, don't think I need one; in all my other tanks I've just used AquaClear pumps. But an overflow box would be cool - hidden pump and all. I guess it would just depend on the price.
    I'll wait for your PM.

    Thanks!

    i visited the petshops in umgeni yesterday, the new tanks were priced too high. One of them is not even open anymore. I did not see anything that caught my fancy except for the cabinet tanks. Their awesome but pricey.
    I visited builders express also, and wow they have really upgraded their store alot. Even found pfp and chemicult as well there.

    Tell me, do any of you guys know someone who builds tank stands? I need a quote

    this is my plan for a 2-tier stand to house 2x 3ft tanks. I got some help from khalidmanack with this. But if costs more than i have set aside i'd rather buy a 4ft tank. Still going to modify this to mount a light for the top tank
