    Hi all, after many rescapes I'm just not satisfied any longer! I'm wanting to start the process in making a 3D background for my cichlid tank. But I have a few questions and obstacles that I'm facing. First, what are the best products? I've heard just regular styrofoam is your best option, but also have seen a lot of raves about spray foam. In regard to styrofoam people have been using the quickrete hydraulic, any issues with this? And I know with the concrete you have to allow your ph to sky rocket so it's best to not re add fish to the tank with out a great risk. Is there any way or products to minimize the ph? I don't have any other tank large enough to house my fish for a couple weeks. I mean I have a 30 gallon, but that will just create havoc. Also, if Using spray foam can you manipulate it and carve it like styrofoam? Lots of questions! Any advice? Thanks guys.
