Molding materials ?
#1
Does anyone know of a canned spray foam or anything else that can be safely used for molding my backing that the cocofiber will be put on. I don't want to hurt my frogs, and I'm about to invest around $1000.00 in my new viv and I want it done right.

I'm guessing it must be safe since blackjungle has used it. I used it to fill in behind my corkbark background. I haven;t had any issues with it. I used "Great Stuff".
$1000 bucks oughta fetch you a nice Vivarium Big Grin

I do know that Black Jungle did cover the foam with silicone.
Good luck Steve.
Peace.

Im actually making tanks like that for my local petshop, the foam once cured is completely harmless to the frogs. just give it a good 24hrs to be sure its fully cured.
