So I had just read something online about most silicone is not safe for viv use? I have put my whole Rock wall inside with this but I have used dry lock to seal. After a few coats of dry lock do you think it would matter there shouldn’t be any fumes coming through from under the foam right ? Someone please tell me if GE tub and tile is ok with a few coats of dry lock? I’m not putting her in there till I get some other opinions. Thank you

I know you’ve done diy projects what do you think? I have put 3 really thick coats of grey dry lock on it and do not see so much as a pin hole. I filled up any gaps real good with expanding foam as well. Do you think the silicone I used would have a negative effect or with all the coats and protection would I be ok?

Really appreciate it Brandon! How long should I leave 3 coats to cure? Will 24 hours do? Btw safe paints will this do? And should I apply it with dry lock mixed it or? Would you happen to know sorry for all the questions just want it to be as dragon friendly as possible.

Ultimately once something is fully cured, it won't be releasing fumes anymore. Are you going to be sealing over the paint? Typically you'd do your grout layer, then your color/painting layer, then a sealant.

I actually am not happy with my colors I threw on there. So I’m gonna go over it again with grey dry lock mixed with a black to give it a charcoaled color and go over all of it leaving a hint of red here and there. Would that be good or should I seal again I don’t have anything clear expect that polyurethane. I am going over again with grey and black dry lock. I do not like this color at all

So I mixed gray dry lock with a chestnut brown and I think I’m finally happy with it color wise

Where did you get that paint from you ended up going with in the end?
I’m going to be doing a build here in the next few weeks and I like the color you have there.

Things have really slowed down here with my forums and videos. A Lot going on with the family and work. I found my paints at hobby lobby but they also have that brand at Wal-Mart I believe. Dinky if and when you do drylock to seal use charcoal grey drylock and the chestnut brown together you will get that natural sandish rocky goldfish grey color. I hope all goes well with your build DIY are so rewarding and the way to go. Don't rush things take your time and keep us updated we would Love to see your project 😁 btw wasssuuuup XP ! HOWS IT GOING!?

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
