Default building a background on sides of tanks

sI wanted to put some pots and maybe some wood onto the sides of my tank but its a giant exoterra and i am afreaid it might break if i put it on its side. Its the 36x18x36 and i already have the baground and false bottom in so its alittle heavier then normal. Is there any other way i could do this without putting the tank on its side? I am using the greatstuff peat method btw.

You could use styrofoam plates and spray the foam onto it and finish it. afterwards you can put it into the viv. I made a part of my viv this way.

Since you probably have some egg crate left over you can use that. Use the GS on the egg crate and then move it into the tank when you are ready.

I siliconed the walls first then sprayed GS onto the walls and mines came out good.
