    Thumbs up What to use to attach magnets to exoterra vines?

    Scott from magnaturals was kind enough to send me some of his magnets, and I want to use them to hang up some exoterra jungle vines, but I'm not sure what the strongest way to attach them would be. Or the safest for my geckos. Would aquarium silicone be fine? I'm thinking of cutting the vines to a desired length, then attaching a washer and magnet on each end, what does everybody think?

    Silicone sounds fine to me. I guess you could also use super glue as long as you let it dry well first.

    Just straight aquarium silicone, and it's fine if some of it isn't covered by the magnets?

    It should be fine. But make sure to let it air out for a few days before giving it to the geckos. The sealant releases acetic acid as it cures. Don't put it in until after it stops smelling like vinegar.

    You can also use Gorilla Glue, I use that for most viv applications when I am joining things
