 Nope  friends,  I'm  still  working  on  it.
 
 I've  applied  another  coat  of  cement  on  the  backside  of  the  background  where  it  will  make  it  little  uneven  for  making  it  easire  to  paste  it  to  glass.  Because  of  the  rainy  season  it  is  still  little  damp  and  I  will  have  to  wait  untill  it  dry  it  off.
 
 Will  definitely  keep  the  thread  updated.

 Well,  there  has  been  a  week  I  was  working  on  stitching  the  cracks.  Finally,  was  able  to  manage  fill  them  up  and  this  time.  I've  applied  2  silicon  tubes  for  pasting  it  and  in  addition  to  this,  I've  also  applied  extra  on  top  and  bottom  sides  to  fill  in  the  gap  between  background  and  glass.  Hopefully  this  time  it  will  not  pop  out.  Keeping  my  fingers  crossed.
 
 Will  post  the  pics  once  the  silicon  is  cured  and  water  is  in  tank.

 Thanks  for  the  concern  and  comments.
 Its  been  4  days  the  background  is  in  tank  with  water  and  it  has  not  popped  out  yet.  There  have  been  2  water  changes  as  of  now  after  it  has  been  put  into  the  tank.  1st  was  immediately  next  day  with  little  cleaning  up  the  surface  area  of  the  assembly.  And  2nd  after  2  days.
 
 I've  also  put  in  an  internal  power  filter  for  better  circulation  of  water  in  the  tank.  Will  post  the  pics,  as  it  looks  different  due  to  massive  cement  coloring  this  time  (although  it  is  not  getting  off  the  background)

 Thanks  Adesh,  it  is  good  to  know  that  now  its  sturdy.  Is  there  any  odour-smell  of  paint  and  cement  and  thermocol+Silicone.  Becos,  cement  odour  will  remain  in  the  pores  of  thermocol.

 Update:
 
 Today,  I've  put  a  female  FH  after  testing  the  pH,  which  was  little  high  as  7.9,  but  i  thought  it  is  ok  for  sturdy  FH  who  was  in  a  pond  before  Wink
 She  was  doing  well  for  1  hour  before  I  left  for  office.  
 
 Some  snaps  for  your  eyes.
