Well, my background has begun to disintegrate due to the constant water(I have a drip wall feature). Rather than rip it apart and start over, I just unplugged the pump and I will no longer have a water feature. I hope my java moss will live with daily spraying.

My conclusion about weldbond/coco background: As long as you don't have a water feature, it is a nice, realistic, relatively inexpensive choice. If you want to run water down the background....better find another method.

It ran for about a month, and only began to "peel". I had multiple layers. Maybe you will have better luck since you applied it in a different way

I keep meaning to run a test, but I think it all has to do with how it is mixed. I have 1 tank (my first with this method) were it did not dry as hard, and may have issues like you did. On my last 2-3 tanks it is much better and almost like rock. I plan to try a small wall in a bucket with water running over it to test it, but have not had time.

I mix it really soupy and it almost dries in a day. I still let it sit for 5-7 days to make sure it is dry, but it is rock hard when its done. I will try the water at somepoint, because I am planning a new leuc tank soon in a 30gal cube.

I need to find some mortor that will make rock type structures that is not WAY over priced. I may just try fiberglass epoxy.
