Hey Nat,

Where did u get the back grounds you've used? Are they the same as the aquarium ones, as that's what we used 4 our Beardies. If so, what have u stuck them on with?

Cheers,

Alex & Cand x

I stuck mine up with kids glue. It was put in well in advance of any reptiles going in the viv so it had plenty of time to dry and air out.

Yep, that's safe Maxine, i used to staple it with a staple gun :D
I also used to apply the background, to the seperate bits of wood and then build the viv, so it would be all clean cut, if you know what i mean, then i used to use sealent to seal the viv, looked well good, because you can't always get the background cut and fit properly :wink:
