    Unfortunately I'm going to Durban for the weekend. Otherwise I would've loved to join.

    Have a great time though!

    @Hendre Well done, nice initiative! Now lets see if JHB/PTA/GP can take a lead from this. Any sponsors still active on the forums?

    I’m into aquascaping and keep normal beginner-type peaceful community fish as well as invertebrates. Fascinated by oddball fish etc but will wait a good while before trying to keep them myself. Looking forward to learning more about the interesting fish species they stock.

    Itching to re-organise RBM’s lovely potted plant selection in the lowboy (with permission of course) :lol:
    - easy, low tech beginner plants on one side with more demanding plants on the other side. That way a plant newbie or someone looking for a low maintenance planted tank would know exactly what to pick from and what to stay away from.
    - further categorised into epiphytes, carpeting plants, root feeders and stem plants (ie similar needs &applications)

    Hi All,

    Not to sure if I can post on here as I am not sponsor on TASA. Admin I will clear this message if against the rules.

    We have spoken to @Hendre and the meet has been cleared by me.

    Regards

    RBM Team
