Default Noob : Custom Background Hygrolon or Foam?

Attempting my first dart frog vivarium. I have decided on Exo 24x18x24

When it comes to background, I want to make it nearly all cork. In my mind I am thinking no more than a inch or so between pieces. what is considered nicest long term?

Hygrolon and silicone Cork bark directly to it?

Foam? and coco siliconed?

Alternatively Could I just sand the Cork down and silicone it directly to the glass and as snug as possible? Would this save a step of having to glue Hygrolon or foaming and siliconing coco.

Is there some new tech if you were building today you would go for?

For the substrate I am just going to use the clay balls with a pvc drain pipe capped. and then josh's ABG. lighting will be Ai prime. 1 or 2 depending on more research and a consensus. Any other advice is welcome.

You could try the cork mosaic style background. https://www.dendroboard.com/forum/da.../topics/347406

Another but more expensive option is cork or tree fern panels.
