I have a 32g bowfront with a mirror background, (hate it) and was thinking of ways to cover the mirror, was thinking of a 3D BG but its not feasable in this tank, so I thought I would coat the back with silicone and embed PFS, what do you all think?

Maybe small rocks, pebbles will work better.

I would defintely NOT use PFS to coat the back of the tank. That would make cleaning it in the future impossible. If you have another tank to put your fish in, I would just scrape off the mirror finish and either paint or use a regular background on your tank.

I believe that stuff just scrapes off, but I have never tried to remove mirror finish before. but I have scraped off many a painted background in my day :)

try a bit of nitromores on the film, its paint and varnish striper and can be really effective on some plastic films.

more good info to file away for future reference. I say in the DIY backgrounds where a guy used slate directly on the back of the tank, used silicone to accach it directly to the glass, looks very cool
