    I got some from a place called "Flower Spot" in JHB. I'm sure there would be a similar place in CT.

    hehe - I WISH it was such a big tank :blink1: Nah, I've just bought a whole bunch of tanks and am setting them up in the Granny Flat (so much for it being used for that though :p) We are busy with the shelving at the moment and clearing the area out. Then it's onto setting up the systems.....

    Wingman001, the builders warehouse here sells it as well - if there is a builders warehouse in Kempton Park I'm sure they'll also stock them. :)

    No problem. Buying it from Builders Warehouse is MUCH cheaper than getting them from your LPS

    Builders Warehouse is half the price of the LFS and Sagex is half the price of Builders - Go figure ..............
