I am creating a container by sticking two plastic cylinders together. I have used "uhu all purpose adhesive" but I'm wondering if its too toxic and could harm my tarantula? Which glues/other sealing subtances are harmful and which ones are ok? Thanks

UHU glue? Isn't that the kind that comes in a yellow applicator? That junk couldn't hold two magnets together!

Get yourself a hot glue gun. Stuff is strong, dries fast, cheap and easy. No real curing process either. As soon as it dries, you're good to go.

This^

but I would add to roughen up the area you are going to glue with some sandpaper first. If it is shiny plastic the hotglue will eventually just come/ pop off.


Silicone works too, you just have to leave it out in the open to lose its fumes for quite awhile.

I was thinking about using aquarium glue too, but was concerned about the smell and whether or not it would hurt the T's. Funny, I was going to ask the same question last night.
