      Arboreal enclosure

      I'm considering making my own 8x8x14 enclosure. Is .080 acrylic sturdy enough? What glue is safe to use? And any other tips are appreciated! Thanks!

      Hey BZeni! I found vids on YouTube for building acrylic boxes...one guy uses Weld On 3 as adhesive to cement the panels together, it’s almost like water so use sparingly. Just Google “building an acrylic terrarium”. Have fun!

      Hi BZeni, sorry it has taken me so long to get to this, but I made a thread on this years ago. I have made quite a few plexi tanks. And yes, Weldon, or some form of methyline (or ethyline) chloride works to fuse plexi pieces together. But this is quite toxic stuff, so make sure you use it in a well ventilated area.

      http://www.tarantulasus.com/showthre...Tarantula-Cage

      Also, a tip I recently learned for getting your hands on plexi at a reduced cost: go to glass shops and ask them if they have any scraps. They are generally happy to sell you their scraps at a reduced price.

      Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.
