Default Exo-Terra FF-Proofing Front Vent TIP!

Hey everyone I searched through the forums and I don't think anybody has done this yet to ff-proof the front vent of an Exo-Terra with just spray adhesive and mosquito netting.


Take the vent off and tape around the edges of the inside part of the vent; just to protect the rest of the vent. Then take 3M waterproof spray adhesive (or whatever waterproof spray adhesive you have) and give it a quick 3 sprays. Then take your mosquito netting and press it over the inside part of the vent and press it all the way in. Mosts pray adhesives are so fine that they will not clog the holes in the vent! Give it a good 10-20 minutes to dry, cut away the excess with a razor blade, remove the tape, and install into your tank!

Pictures may come later... my girlfriend borrowed my camera.

Hope this is helpful!
Happy frogging,

Restarting in the hobby... for a third time.
