Hi all!

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).
