    Hi everyone, Just wondering if anyone has any experience using the G4 Pond Sealer Clear, or if anyone can verify if it is or is not safe? I'm assuming that because it is safe for fish and amphibians then it should be no problem for reptiles or am I missing something? There are a few other...

    I need some advice please! I've drawn up plans for 3 new vivs and I'm stuck on what material to use for the build - Moisture Resistant MDF or Marine Ply. The vivs will be in my front room, in a stack with a cupboard underneath them so it needs to look good. Which ever I use, the interior and...

    Am putting together a viv made out of OSB and it's going to be out in the garage (not attached to the house.) The garage isn't sealed and has air gaps between the roof and walls etc so reasonable air flow but is bone dry. It'll be partly open fronted as it's to house a couple of tortoises...

    I'm currently in the middle of construction on a wooden vivarium, and I was wondering if there were any specific types of sealants and finishes that you prefer over others. I know that for sealing joints and the like I will need an aquarium grade silicone, but what about sealing and/or finishing...

    Ordered two new vivs, which have both arrived and been built up. A 6x2x2 and a 3x2x2. Never sealed a viv before, what sealant would you recommend? Any old vivarium/aquarium sealant, or is one brand a cut above the rest? Also, how much will I need to seal both vivs? Cheers for any advice given.

    As the title says! I joined specifically just to get a clear answer on this, as I've gotten mixed answers and in the end it didn't quite help out. I ordered a custom made wooden vivarium, but as it turns out it'll be delivered unsealed. Now, lesson learned, I need to ask these things...

    I’ve been a member for a while but haven’t posted before so….hello J I recently had a custom background fitted into a brand new vivarium for my bearded dragon at a local pet shop. The background is made from fibreglass and I was assured by the shop that it is totally safe. When the completed...

    So one of my vivs has started leaking when I'm mist spraying, despite aquarium sealant having been used originally. I obviously need to put some more sealant on but would prefer not to use the aquarium sealant due to the time it takes to dry, as I'd have to keep the snake out of the viv for a...

    Hi i am making a slate background/hide/basking area for my Kimberley Rock Monitors and wound like to know if Dow Corning 791 is safe to use to bond it all together and stop it toppling as i would like to use the Anthracite colour which is a similar colour to the state i am using.

    All you custom hide/decor makers, what do you use to seal your creations??? My old man has just spent weeks making me an awesome miniature termite mound hide for my daughters Royal and has sealed it using PVA I believe. The first time I have gone to wash it (after Tigger has used it to great...
