Question Question about vivarium background


I know it's not the best place to ask a question, but as I have to post twice in the introduction section (in order to gain more access), I thought it best to put my first question here too.

I've watched zillions of videos on this about how to make backgrounds, but there's one issue I've never seen addressed. This is about how to remove it later - e.g. in years to come it may need replacing or we might want to sell the vivarium itself.

Can spray foam ever be removed, please? Or are there any other ways to build a background that can be removed, which are affordable?

That's a really great question and you're right it's not really addressed in those videos. I am planning to use a suggestion of cork mat (like one would use as a memo board) as a base to build on. It might end up a big mess but I really don't like the idea of seeing foam nor painting the exterior.

So I'm following this for some possible alternate suggestions. Thanks.
