I have built GS, cork, epi-web and clay backgrounds, GS will or has for me failed i.e. separate from the glass over time, the cork backgrounds look great, take a long time to build and are pricey.The clay backgrounds are quick and easy but the 4 out of 6 I have built have failed over 3-4 years.When they fail they fall forward a HUGE PIA. My opinion is just build without a background, the plants take over and you can't see it, now the other alternatives are ok but if you are in it for the long haul just buy a nice piece of wood, mount your broms or vines on it if you want broms (I kill them plus they are expensive, so film canisters work fine for me and my frogs, plus they are easier to check for tads). Just go without a background use the money you saved plus the time building it and use it on frogs or feeders or plants. Plus give your vivs, plants and microfauna time to establish before adding frogs.
