    My name is Wendy Kurniawan (before you think I'm a girl, i have to tell you that I'm a real man, wendy is an unisex name here in Indonesia) :p

    I'm the administrator of many Indonesia's Aquascape Facebook Page,
    also Indonesian Aquascape Forum, http://indoaquascape.com

    In other aquascape forums, I always registered with nick "SuperWen"
    and this is my facebook page: http://facebook.com/wendy.kurniawan

    I have a work visit and going to stay in Cape Town in mid April, and will stay about a week around somerset-ebenezer.Rd

    Can somebody tell me the aquascape stores or LFS that recommended to visit..?
    I don't want to shopping or buy things, just want to look around and want to know how this hobby in S.Africa


    best regard and thanks,

    -SuperWen-

    Welcome to APSA Superwen! I do not know the Cape shops, someone from there will surely be able to help.

    The aquascaping hobby is still growing in South Africa.

    Hey hey, welcome Mas Wendy. I'm sure you'll enjoy Cape Town very much! But as was said, the hobby is still quite small here.
    Satu-satunya Mas Adrian :thumbsup:

    Welcome :hello2:

    You won't find any "aquascaping" shops in CT. We have fish shops that sell stuff for aquascaping ;D.

    Welcome to APSA Superwen. Glad to see you here, I've followed a few of your scapes on the other forums. You have done some beautiful tanks. I have learned quite a lot from you. It's a privilege to have you here.
    You will not find any dedicated aquascaping shops in our country yet, as it is something that is still establishing it's self here. We do however have a vibrant forum and generally share with each other, the locations of shops that we find stocking hardscape suitable for aquascaping. For plants, our aquarium stores do stock them, but availability is subject to what our importer can bring in for us and then we also have an on-line plant supply called BetterWeather... See the link in our sponsor section. You should find your way around quite quickly and I'm sure you'll be scaping soon.
    B...
