My false bottom will have 6 inches of water around it. When covering it with spray foam, should I just leave the spray foam as is or do I need to coat it in silicone? Does it make any difference since the spray foam can be submerged in water and it's just for asthetics?

I purchased the black gs so it will look similar to some black rocks. Another option was to get a sheet of coco fiber and put that on the gs with silicone but I am unsure if the coco fiber can be fully submerged in water or not.

I could not find another thread asking the same questions.

Thank you for helping me learn!

Is the foam you are referring to on the perimeter of your enclosure?

It will be along the edge of the glass going down to the false bottom land area going around it like a bowl to hold the substrate in. This false bottom is 6 inches above the base of the aquarium and will be filled with water up to that level. The land will be fully submerged with 2 sides facing water and visible from the front.

It will be housing some guppies and shrimp and crab. Possibly some other fish and aquatic plants as well
