Zoo meds viquarium is also a good choice for about 75 usd
Yep that's a false bottom.

I am building a similar project and plan to construct a false bottom with rock, eggcrate, and pvc pipe. I have the same question on mold and also what pump to put under the false bottom to make a water fall.

Any pump will work, sometimes it takes trial and error though, my 90gph pump wouldn't put out enough water, in my opinion, for a 8 inch wide water fall.

Problem is I know nothing about what is a good pump or anything lol I want it to lift the water 12ish inches and then make a small waterfall and a stream.

Well. All you're doing there is connecting a hose the to pump and then to the back of the water fall. These water falls do come premade but they aren't very big and cost a butt load. Homemade ones are nice but not amazing. I'm a diy kinda person

I would probably suggest a 100-150 gph water pump. Try doing some research on diy waterfalls
