    I am so going to do this. I have already asked my brother to help as he is good with stuff like this. I will be sure to post some pictures when I do. I was thinking of doing something like this for a while, and putting some ledges and hides into the actual backdrop. Would look good.

    I've seen this done several times and several different ways. It looks like no sealant was used on this, I imagine it is safe enough as this guys gecko has been in it for 6 months. I am still probably going to go the grout and GS foam method when I make mine. I do this because I think that it just being foam, the gecko may bite or tear a chunk off. Also not being sealed, and being foam, the foam would probably absorb water in a high humididty setup, causing the paint to soften.

    Why would you need to clean background ?

    My guess would be you need to clean the background when your reptile leaves droppings all over it. That's why you need to clean it.
