Attaching Plastic Egg Crate to Tank

Post by jennaleigha » Thu May 21, 2020 1:30 pm

Hi everyone!

I just received my new terrarium and have all the items ready to start putting it together. How do y’all reccomend attaching the plastic egg crate to the sides of tank? I can’t figure out what would be best to use.

Thanks in advance!

What size tank do you have? We use tension rods. I wrap them with hemp or jute rope so the crabbies can grip them. You can attach other climbing stuff to the egg crate too, like Cholla, fake plants and shelves. I recommend using a pair of sharp wore cutters for cutting it. Scissors are difficult and the plastic flies all over! Oh, and I attach the rope with zip ties so it doesn't come off or unravel.
