thanks for the info! I really appriciate it! one question... can you use it on the bottom of the cage to? like to make a pond?I have had great success with gs. I personally like the pond and stone kind. Its black and comes in a larger size can. It is a couple dollars more then the regular gs. I used it in a custom 55 gallon turtle tank I had, worked great.
i geuss ill learn from trial and outcome then. If its fish safe then I dont see why it would be a problem. thanks againI personally have not used it that way. Maybe someone else will chime in on that issue. On the gs pond foam it says it is fish safe so it may work. You will most likely need to seal it with silicone though.
-MattGreat Stuff is in a highly compressed container. If you screw on the top and it doesn't come out do not punture the seal with a screwdriver! You will just have made a GS rocket and a huge ____ing mess.
When messing with GS, go outside away from the house, wear old clothes and gloves.
Great stuff DOES heat up as it reacts, but I'm willing to bet that it was just the expansion pressure that caused the back to shatter. GS needs a lot of room to expand and if you put the whole can in and set it on it's back to cure, I'm sure it just expanded through the back because the back will cure slower than the front.Also to note... my first experience with great stuff .. I actually bought the large can for a 10 gal vert I was going to create.. I put the whole can in the bottom (which would be the back) of this vivarium and let it stand for 2 days BUT the back of the glass shattered.. I just simply placed foam and black electrical tape all over the back and it is still useful to this day.. just don't layer it too thick as it heats up before it cools.. at least that's what I was told it does...
