Homemade Aquarium Background "caves" using PVC pipe. I also have another video of the same type of DIY background made for another cichlid aquarium.
This was my first attempt and I made a few minor changes on the next one. Tanks have been going for a couple of years with these backgrounds with no issues. I prefer this method over the large amounts of styrofoam required for some other DIY background here on youtube.
My opinion is that these panels are much less bouyant and provide lots of private areas for your fish to find security from their tankmates. They are also very easily removed. If you have an aquarium with braces it will work much better as the braces hold the panels down and in place.
I do not even know if the DryLock is necessary. Several people report that rather than using the yellow or white spray foam which needs painting,... they simply use the black/gray foam and do not even need to seal it in any way. I havent tried that yet.
