Wet the entire adhesive side using the spray soap-water solution. Carefully place the background (adhesive side) to the aquarium surface you are applying to. Lightly squeegee horizontally, working from the center outwards to the left and then to the right. Applying more pressure, continue working the remainder of air and solution out from between the aquarium and the background. Allow 90 minutes for adhesive to set before moving or touching applied background.

6661697453 f24e22c2f4 m What might be the most lightweight and biosafe materials for DIY aquarium 3D backgrounds and rocks?
The thought of using something that's not really all that natural (polystyrene, paints, and sealants) seems so odd, but then, the thought of being able to mold, however I want, something that's lightweight, is so appealing. I wonder, do you know what might be out there that's lightweight, easily molded/shaped, and biosafe? Heck, in my current state of ignorance, all I can think of is trying to chisel a huge lava rock. There's got to be more and better suggestions...
