Progress has been slow due to nice weather, 10 year wedding celebrations and my other hobby (LARP animation) taking so much time, life is good!
I have been bouncing back and forth a couple of ideas and need this communities input.
For the overflow:
Originaly I was going to go the traditional way of making it with 2 pieces of glass in the corner covered with black acrylic panels and a build it "comb". However I saw this incredible system :

Now I was thinking of hiding overflow pipes and internal box in this stuff. Love the caves and final look.
Any special precautions needed in the 2-part epoxy or do they all do the job (since material becomes inert after reaction)?
For the substrate:
I received my bags of Flourite and saw Laterite. Should I put some Laterite at the bottom before adding my flourite?
I'm getting ready to remove the silicone in the display and reseal the sucker (preventive, no leaks).
