styrafoam for background

Postby maggiedog1 » Tue Nov 29, 2016 5:53 pm

Hi all, I recently got some big blocks of styrafoam packing. Used in packing a bed frame in a box for shipping. Im makeing a back ground out of the pink styrafoam 4x8 ft. insulation from Home Depot useing cement coating. Does anyone know if styrafoam used for packageing and shipping is ok to use in a cichlid tank ? Thanks, Frank.

Hi Frank. I haven't heard of any issues using the white packing styrofoam for backgrounds. I know some folks who've shared there projects here have used the white stuff. Should be ok. I know folks would love to see any photos you could share as your project comes along too!
