ya silicon will work fine, just dont get the stuff with mold inhibitors and whatnot..... i got the pheonix worms too, my frogs seem to like them, though 1 of my azureus atleast hasnt touched them, but these guys really tend to avoid larger food then alot of species, but my big female loves em so u never know.

Use foam, its not hard to use and it will keep frogs from ending up in the back of the cork bark.

Default ok

Ok I got the cork bark and the great stuff foam and I was wondering do I just cover the back of the viv with the GS and right after push the cork bark into it? the tank would be on its side with the back of it down so it cure so do you think this would work a fast reply would be nice because I want to get it on the tank tonight and hopefully get substrate and plants in it by monday. thanks

Just use silicone, and fill the gaps with silcone and dry sphagnum moss, the kind they use for orchids. The sphagnum comes back to life, and looks really neat. I hate the gs, cuz then you have to cover it with something. All of my cork backgrounds i employ this method. It is very easy to fill any gaps that could allow access to frogs to get behind as well
