Hi All,

I have a new indoor enclosure for my Redfoot, ready to go minus the pond lining. My question is - should I use industrial staples to attach the pond liner? I have been doing this with her current enclosure, but she is just so BIG and the staples rust...she ends up ripping them off of the walls and they fall into her substrate. I am afraid this will happen if I get the same stainless steel (some sort of non-rustproof grade, apparently) staples. Does anyone use anything specific, that has worked for them for many years? I am open to suggestions if staples aren't the way to go.

Thank you. Enclosure attached - hope to get more pics once it's all set up.

I used a heavy shower curtain and then attached it on the sides (inside) about 5" up with gorilla tape. Has worked perfectly fine for almost a year. Good thing about the tape is its waterproof and seals every gap.

did you line the bottom? I am wondering how I would fix the liner to fill in all the corners, but I guess dirt would do the trick
