Excellent idea to use foam. The tank will generally not fill the 
compartment tho, unless it is really large. Plus, you would have to 
be quite careful with the foam as it would compress the water and 
force it out the breathing tube, thus reducing tank capacity. This 
method on the connections tho I think would be excellent, since in my 
experience that is where they go.
