That's what I want to do to finish it off. The only reason I want to refinish or at least sand it a little is some of the prices have black X's on them written in sharpie.

No substrate on the bottom. I think it would be too messy and cause problems. I have some pots with plain pea gravel in the bottom for the fish to spawn in and some plants have rooted in them.
