Thanks by the time I added all the layers of foam this one did take up a fair but of space but I've seen some only a couple of inches thick. You should give it a go. It was quite fun!

You can do a background in a 20g just scale it down. There's diy caves and arches you could do. There are plenty of ideas around the web for diy projects.
