    Default Broken glass

    Is it safe to silicone cracked glass on a viv, or should I just dump it? It's on the top pane.. not as likely the frogs will go there but not impossible either.

    silicone it!! For sure, just wait 48 hours before getting anyone in there.

    The best option is to silicone a piece of glass over the cracked area to act as a patch, just running a bead of silicone down the crack won't do much.

    I have an oceanic terrarium (1990's) buy time ito got the top in the house my son broke it. Like into 15 pieces, especially the corners where theres turn locks. I used GE2 and it's held up. But when I used a dome light on it, it cracked more. So that crack may grow with more heat on it. If you're using one hike it up atleast 4 or 5 inches. The florecsent has no effect.

    Originally it was only a small flake chipped off from the outside edge, but when I put the heat lamp on top it decided to crack all the way across. Thanks for info I'll patch it and see what happens.
