Great Stuff Foam by Dow

Anyone used this stuff to create a Background?

I see they have a Pond and Stone version, I just have the Regular stuff I used to create some rock face for a Landscape scene on my HO Train layout.

I was thinking If I can drylock paint it should be ok? But the composition of the compounds are not listed on the can....I am pretty skilled in using it creating some decent landscapes So I was thinking want not in a tank. This way I can design it like I want vs. buying a Pre Fab. It would be going into a 55 Gallon African Tank I am setting up.

opinions welcome and encouraged.

Thx

I have never personally used it, but I have seen a lot of viquarium and vivarium setups that did use it. I think it would be safe.

I have seen people use it, and i was going to aswell. But, after doing some research found that a lot of people said over time it started to fall apart and looked really bad

Thanks for the tip...I could see it maybe not holding up in the long run.
