    I have a old tank that I plan on using for a short time until I get my custom cage started up.This is a gigantic glass tank and on one side it is cracked.

    A zoology professor said it would be fine but I wanted your guys opinion. I can run my hand down it and it wont cut me and I am sure it wont fall in but to be on the safe side can I mabye put hot glue on the surface to ensure that my baby wont get hurt or is hot glue posionus? :confused:

    Please any comments would get greatly appreciated and please remember this is only temporary otherwise I wouldnt use it. :eek:

    Try Aquarium Sealant's safe but may look kind of lumpy but the snake will be safe :)

    I would run a bead of clear silicone (waterproof) caulk along the crack and then add the duct tape over the crack after the caulk dries. ;)

    The silicon aquarium sealant will do just fine. That stuff is all that is holding the glass sides of aquariums together and thats holding a lot of water pressure!
