  1. Just my two cents, you can't blame the LFS, you can only blame the owner. Unless you're a total idiot, you wouldn't buy a car and trust the dealers word, you wouldn't buy a TV without researching if it was going to meet your needs, so in effect only the purchaser is to blame for not doing their research on the proper needs of the animal. It's common knowledge that no matter what business it is, they're job is to sell you stuff so the person at fault can only be the owner for not doing the research. Like I said, just my two cents.

  2. Yeah it doesn't help that of the only two tank builders I know of in Cairns, One's an absolute rip off and rough quoted me $2000 for the job, and the other one never returns calls or anything. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk - now Free
  3. Wouldn't the freight company be at fault? And can you buy insurance for things that are freighted? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk - now Free
  4. Let's say I did get Denison to build it and I had it freighted up. What do you think I'd be looking at for freight and if it smashed on the way, who's the replacement fall on? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk - now Free
  5. So far I've heard between $800 and $1500 which is quite reasonable. Oh, and $2000 lol. I'll definitely let you know who I end up going through This Denison guy I keep reading about sounds like a top bloke, and if I didn't live in Cairns he'd be seeing some business from me. I know there are freight options available but local sourcing seems a better choice as I get jittery just moving one of my small tanks across town lol. In the meantime I've been working on my hard/soft scaping and I must say I've really surprised myself! For substrate I'm going for a 2inch layer of Eco complete, a 1inch layer of black diamond sand on top and to keep it separated a sheet of fibreglass fly screen. I know peeps may be thinking "Man that's going to be hard to plant through" but for one, I don't plan on really changing anything and for two I've "Invented" what I think could be a very useful tool to allow planting (And future planting) in this type of setup with ease. I've still got some fine tuning to do and it's going to be much easier to show in a tutorial when I'm actually doing it so stay tuned Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk - now Free
  6. Hey guys, first post, first question I'm looking at getting an 8x3x2.5ft tank built and noticed quite a few guys here have them. I was wondering if anyone with one would be willing to divulge how much the "tank only" cost them to give me a bit of a ball park figure to run with. This should also help should I come across any rip offs out there. Thanks in advance, Michael. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk - now Free
