hi guys Just new to the Fourm and Reading your thread.
Great work on the backgrounds. Am I right in thinking that the only way to get the backgrounds to stay in place is to cut them to fit so they kinda wedge on the back of the tank?

Is that Right?

I have no clue if my magnets idea will work...I never finished this project! :-(

But I think wedging it in would work great!

That looks awesome so far! Love the castle idea, very clever. I will be attentively watching this thread to hear about it as you go. I've seen a bunch of DIY tips for these, but never actually heard from someone as they progressed through. I want to make one of these for my 29 Gal. My hopes for it are to put a small tunnel in the back of it so I can pull water from the opposite end of the tank than the side that my filter is on. But I love the idea of being able to put caves on the walls other than just being restricted to the floor.

Yea, I would Like to finish this project by mid summer....I'm not in any rush...I did do a trial one that is small but I used the wrong finish and the chemical reaction caused the styrofoam to melt so I'm a bit hesitant to finish this one....
