Default 15g Vivarium Construction

I've been planning and constructing a new 15g Vivarium. I have previously had PDF and am getting the itch to get back into the hobby. I am planning on having a water feature (waterfall) with no pond. I have constructed the fake rocks/ temple waterfall using styrofoam/grout/paint. Here are a few photos of the progress I have been making:

Here is a front and back image of the temple:

Back Temple
- Now I'm going to put screen on the exposed back to that the frog/flies can not get into the waterfall and pump area

Here are pictures of the fake rocks I have made:

Here's a full shot of the positioning of the wall items and the waterfall

This is the progress so far. I am going to seal the rocks/waterfall and use great stuff for the exposed background within the next few days. For lights I have 2 24w T5 bulbs (I have one red, which explains the discoloration) I'm also planning on lowering the false bottom about a 1/2 inch. I have a few questions:

What should I use to seal the fake rocks/waterfall? Can I get it at Home Depot or Lowes?

What should I use for silicone for the great stuff? And What should I use to press onto the silicone for the fake background?

Thoughts and comments are welcomed and encouraged.

What are the inhabitants going to be, and if it is finished then could we get a picture?
