    Went by this morning. Looks really good. Great selection of products, and once those livestock tanks are filled, it will be amazing.

    Yasser, thanks for taking the time to chat. Really appreciated. I will definitely be back.

    As promised, I also gave my uncle a call and let him know where you guys have set up shop and he'll be coming by in the future as well.

    Went to the shop.. I can categorically say that this is the best shop I have seen in a long time, including my time in Spain, Portugal, UK, Holland, Denmark and Sweden.

    Only one shop better than this one, and that is the TGM.

    If Sam follows my advice, and we will meet at my house soon, and he changes the way he keeps plants, buys plants from Anubias and other European Sellers, and does a few display tanks, this shop can be as good, if not better than TGM.

    This can be the first Aquascaping company in Africa.

    The range of Nanos, LED lights, aquascaping equipement, CO2 reactors, substrate and filters, is absolutely phenomenal.

    Loved it.

    There are fish there, some pigmy cories, some other small fish, for nanos, but that is easy, most can do that.. issue is kit, plants, aquariums and lights..

    The shop is well stocked, has everything and more.. I went there to just look and came back with R2000 worth of kit, even bought a 5kg CO2 bottle... :)

    Bought a tall boyo, that I can use as emersed tank, and some egg crate which I have been looking for ages.. :) Loved the shop.

    I gather the 'Shrimp Shack' part of the shop is still to be launched :)

    There will be a chat room drink/snack bar, but strictly halal.

    I hope the aircon is now installed as it was getting hectic warm in there..

    Look at the time between the posts.. :) I based my comment on the photo of the same stair tank all shops use for the plants..

    My comment on this post was after I went there to view the shop and spent time talking to Sam..

    Also, I was explicit..


    Change the way the plants are kept, and there will be no competition..

    The shop is spot on.. I am not that much into shrimps, but there is a lot of potential there..

    Nanos, lights, good merchandise, and if possible a meeting point..

    This is the kind of shop I would like to setup, and I am happy that someone is doing it.. There is a future now. :)
