    I hate these backgrounds!

    It seems all my Asian arboreal like to do this. It drives me nuts!

    At least I finally got a photo of one of my hati hati :hilarious:

    I love the second picture :hilarious:

    "Oooo, is this a tiny crack I found? It is! I shall make this my abode."

    Why don't you just put hot glue along the seams before decoration? Seems like a simple fix to me, although I've never used these.

    I'm not a fan of those backgrounds either tbh, I've seen them get chewed to pieces but I've never seen that before lol.
    I guess it's not so bad for the larger ones but in a nano tall they take up far too much room so I replace them with cork tile backgrounds which are less than half the thickness, look much better and are less likely to become chew toys.

  6. Yeah. These Exo Terra backgrounds are real bad. I use LR backgrounds usually and this doesnt happen with them as they are flat fit. Every time I have put Poec in with these this is what happens. And now with Hati ahah:rolleyes:

    I should learn last time

    Hot glue wont work it melts the styrofoam, but there are glues that will work.
    I use them but buy bigger slabs (24x24) then turn it sideways so the gaps are blocked by the side glass.

    That's the one, I couldn't remember the brand but one sheet of it does 3 nano tall enclosures or (I assume) 2 of the 30x30x45 enclosures.

    I've taken to using aquarium silicone on a lot of my fixtures that can't handle hot glue. It holds really well and most fully dry in a day or two. I used it on the second set of enclosures I built and it is golding up really well.
  11. You can try putting them back in? :p

    I always removed them for my geckos, because crickets would hide behind them.
    seems T's will do the same.

    I usually take the background out for the same reasons but I don't replace it with anything. I like seeing in from all four sides, just one more angle you can spot a sac.. ;)
