Is background safe?

Made concrete background, left it outside for about two months, then attached it to my 125. After attaching the bg I did some touch up work with cement. let it cure for about 10 days while doing water changes. After I checked my parameters and everything was fine for about the last three days. Would it be safe to go ahead and put fish in it? I already have some peacock babies in there and they have been doing fine for about three days? Do you people think I could go ahead and put my show tank together, or should I wait some more? PH is 7.8 and stable and the fish are doing fine.
Please let me know what you guys think I am really nervous about putting my show fish in the tank! I'd really appreciate some advice from experienced people.

all the concrete will do is raise your ph which is not such a bad thing with african cichlids.just keep an eye on it :thumb:
