Is silicone the only way to get the background to stay against the back of the tank? Just recently decided to make a 3D background and not really wanting to silicone it to the back of the tank. Any ideas would be appreciated. Also if you have any tips/tricks/random advice/do's and don't s let me know!

Is it a DIY Styrofoam background and if so how thick is it overall?

ASFAIK, they need to be attached firmly using silicone liberally because otherwise they are extremely buoyant and will pop out of the tank and potentially break glass lids, lights and possibly the plastic brace in the top of the tank.

Can you post a couple pics of your background?
