    Yeah, I replace them with cork bark tiles, looks better and takes up half the space of the foam ones.

    Oh, we did. And got the evil thing out. But... Michael's... Has anyone bought Michael's plants? For anything?

    Well, I know that now. New nano tall is from Amazon. Might be better or worse, but no brake or crack.

    I'd say it probably varies between their fake plants. I'm sure most are okay. I tend to stick to silk plants meant for aquariums though. If you are gonna try a Michaels plant, rinse it first. This should make there is nothing on there that could harm the T.

    Just jumping in here for a few seconds to say I hate Petco. That is all.

    I buy my exo terra things from pangea reptiles, packaged very well, fast ship, and have the best prices and they offer free shipping and coupons often. (I know you got one already but thought id mention it)

    And a word of warning on fake plants from places that dont make pet safe stuff.... i bought some plants from hobby lobby to put in with my axolotls and the plant disintegrated in the water and killed all of them over night. I realize a tarantula cage doesnt have water in it to cause that kind of break down but just realize that bad stuff is still in there regardless. Just keep your plant choices in mind... not only i lost my year old babies i raised from 2" but that was quite an investment killed by 5$ plants. Not worth the risk imo.

    you can repair it with a glue or epoxy, virtually anything that can dry and bond, but if it's for a display specimen I guess it has to be perfect.

    I seem to recall @Ungoliant successfully using... something spider-related from Michael's.

    I've used them.

    I clean them with mild soap and water before using them, in case they have any lubricants or other residue from the manufacturing process.

    he has great video quality and a energetic personality, but hes far from someone id recommend for any good information. or advice. watch him for entertainment, not serious research.

    When their own employees tell you to go somewhere else, you know that it's bad! I get my crickets (when I get the noisy buggers) from our Pet Depot now. A locally owned pet shop. I like them. They care about the animals and the pet parents.

    Still can't insert quotes to edited posts. If you want to combine these double posts and yell at me, I get it.

    All I wanted to do was thank Ungoliant for posting about Michael's. I was uber paranoid about dyes and glues, but we have coupons and Leels needs much clutter. Now, I think she'll have more than she needs. I'm so excited. Damn screen just got replaced. Pics soon.

    Select the desired post selecting +Quote. Then appears a extra button to insert quotes. Click on it, and choose the posts. Maybe there is a time limit?

    Ah, there might be a time limit. You might be right. This has happened to me several times, but each time has been quite an amout of time after the original post.
