Re: Grey Mantala for false Bottom
@socraticmonologue, I'm doing some early planning for a little 18x18x24 build and am thinking about following your lead and using a couple sheets of mantala as a drainage layer with a small cut in the corner for a siphon area/pond.
I'm curious if you treated the mantala at all around the edges of the pond area to protect the frogs from possible abrasion. I like the look of the rocks you placed there, but did you add anything extra behind them? I noticed that some others have had frogs get snagged in mantala and if I go this route I'd want to protect it somehow along the exposed pond edge. I was thinking about siliconing the edge and then poking some small holes throughout to still allow water flow. Does that seem overly cautious?
