I'm not to sure how long Polystyrene last, I painted mine with a good coat of water based paint top & bottom. This has helped to stop the UV affects on the surface & has sealed the bottom from the fish/Yabby's from chewing it. The one board I have in the DWC has been in there for 3 years & is still in good condition.
