Default False bottom in drilled tank

I am building a paludarium for mudskippers and need to figure out the best way to separate land and water. The tank is drilled, so I want to utilize the overflow and sump.

I can cut or drill the overflow at any height and adjust the pipes etc to drain.

My question is, can I create a false bottom out of eggcrate, utilize ceramic media etc under the eggcrate and still drain into the overflow? Or will I create a stagnant area that I cannot access?

In other words, I want the land area in front of the where the water will overflow, but I want a distinct shoreline using egg crate..

Any thoughts? Thanks!
