I just saw a video on youtube where a guy made an aquarium background using pink strrofoam covered with quickcrete concrete. It looked interesting but I was concerened about 2 things. First the slats contained in the concrete. and second the chance that the concrete will crack being so thin. Has anyone tried this? Does it really work? And what about adding concrete coloring to the mix?

Not sure how custom it would count as but this is mine. Its two of the marina styrofoam backgrounds. I could have done the pink styro with the concrete ect, but I did this as it was easier on hubbs piece of mind. Its just siliconed in place.
