Today is week 4 for me and a PVA background... still drying in some bits :/

Guess the key is to use the absolute minimum needed for the materal to stick

Just a quick one, I have done this on a viv and left it a full week after doing all sides to dry so I was 100% it was dry and I have used this exact stuff nick has said above

 

my issue question is I have planted and set up the mister and where its sprayed the most its gone from see through (side of viv looking in) to white again

 

is this ok? has anyone else seen this?

when you spray the background does the water run clear down the pva substrate?

The aquarium silicones people buy are vinegar based, this is the nose biting smell you get from it when you use lots, it will not cause harm to your frogs. Obviously don't use it when the frogs are actually in the tank ;)

yeah the water runs clear I have done a test on some glass dried the glue then soaked it and it looks white but nothing leaks / bleeds

 

very strange , don't think its harmful I was more worried it was all gona fall off it took me 2 weeks
