Material for bottom contouring...

Greetings all...

Here's my scenario/question. For the left-brained among you...

What is a SAFE, submersed-durable, material that can be easily sculpted into bottom contours to aid in substrate slope-retaining and general aquascape depth-of-field. How can I obtain a vertical wall in the back and 1 corner of my 46gal bowfront, while running external suppliers behind/underneath ( CO2, heating cable, etc)

For the right-brained folks...

How would y'all go about designing the "clay" or "rock" wall of a sharp bend in a creek (crick) . What about a stepped "bay" bottom with a sand bar and "deep hole". Or a grass flat with dead tree limbs and stumps.

Would you direct your filter outflow to follow the 'natural contours' of the sculpted bottom?

How would I recreate a specific zone within a biotope without actually traveling and observing such a place. I need the nuts and bolts here. The visualization and imagination of details I have...

Any opinions would be weighed and considered...

Oh, BTW, I am new to this site and hope I haven't created a too-deep discussion here...my apologies.

Rick
