Adhesive for Background?

Hi friends!
So before I dive into my question, I wanted to give a little update on Elliot! After his vet visit he was put on an antibiotic for RI and he seems to be doing great! The mouth popping is at a bare minimum already and he's only about halfway through the round of antibiotics so things are definitely looking up😄 The enclosure that we set up for him was only decorated to give him the basic necessities while we were monitoring him and getting him back to health, but now that he's doing better it's time to add some pizzazz!🥳
I have everything ready for him (well, besides a couple items, but I figured those could be added in after the big overhaul for alittle enrichment) and the last thing I was trying to get was a desert background. I have it all ready to go and I was about to order it when I realized I had no idea how I was going to attach it😅 I have a Zen Habitat enclosure so it's bamboo wood walls, which is pretty so if this background idea doesn't work out it's not the end of the world, I just thought it would look nice haha. Anyways! I see alot of people recommending Mod Podge, double sided tape, or a silicone to attach things safely inside of the enclosure, however people have also mentioned that mod podge isn't very heat resistant and with my basking bulb being right over top of it (it'll be placed close to the back left corner) I'm afraid it'll melt and detach and cause all sorts of problems. I've also seen people saying that using tape inside of enclosures isn't good for the reptile and that it also breaks down at higher temperatures, which may or may not give off fumes? I couldn't really find much about that part of it, and as for the silicone wouldn't it give the background a ripple effect? Is there any other alternative by chance?
Also sorry if these questions were already answered somewhere else😅

If it's bamboo could you just use thumb tacts? Not the long plastic ones. The little rounded ones.

Wow I haven't logged in for years. Hi!
So to any reading this, how on earth do I post a thread 😅 New here, possibly too old for this

Just Hazel in a filter I need so not posting on forums.

I have questions about bubbles on our bearded dragons eye.

So he’s gotten bubbles on his eye. We wiped them off and it’s only been twice in the last few weeks. Should we be concerned? No coughing or congestion. He’s very hungry and sleeps well. He’s 8-9 month range. His humidity is 30-40 day time and as high as 50-55 at night to early morning.
Should we be concerned?
