Hey I've currently got a wooden vivarium which I have been told by members on here it is big enough to house a group of Whites Tree Frog's so please don't say anything about it being wood or the size. I went to leaping-lizards and bought reptile safe 100% silicone. I got my dad to silicone it on Tuesday, I am going into acomb tonight to buy some coco fibre/ coco husk, fake-plants and a hygrometer. Would the silicone be safe to let my future frog in today or should I wait and go by the original plan of buying it on Saturday? Thanks in advance!
You want the silicone to completely dry and the fumes to be out of the tank. If there is no smell you should be fine. I would at least get some coco fiber in and something for them to climb on before putting them in since you really don't want to stress them out making changes while they are trying to acclimate to the new home.
1.0.1 Red Eyed Leaf/ Frog - Agalychnis callidryas
1.1.0 Bumblebee Dart Frog - Dendrobates leucomelas
1.1.0 Dendrobates truncatus - Yellow Striped
1.1.0 Dendrobates tinctorius – Bakhuis Mountain
0.0.2 Dendrobates Ventrimaculatus 'Understory Line'
0.0.2 Dendrobates tinctorius 'Cobalt'
You should wait for about 3 days after siliconing to put the frogs in.
Even though it's says 100% safe for reptiles those fumes aren't.
