But I was wondering if anyone had experience using any other products to seal plywood so that it can drain water well without needing to hold standing water? Just a late night thought I had. I know the simple answer is just use pond shield to build the viv but that particular product is rather expensive and I was looking to find if anyone knows of a less expensive alternative epoxy resin paint that can be used this way?

Thanks all

For wooden boat building West System Epoxy is commonly used but it is even more expensive. I used to hang out on wooden boat forums and folks there used to make noises about using garage floor epoxy for a boat but it was always just talk, no one wanted to potentially destroy a boat to test something that might give out in a few years. On facebook I have seen people build plywood vivariums using what they simply called "epoxy". It was black and when I asked if it was pond shield they got distracted and never answered. Sorry that's all I got for you. I am planning my own 120 gallon plywood vivarium and for that I am planning a sloped false bottom and will be using pond shield.
