2 part epoxy paint

I am going to try using a two part epoxy paint over some 3d cement backgrounds in my aquariums. I've used Quikrete Quikwall and the epoxy I'm using is called Enviropoxy. It is a high gloss clear epoxy. It is supposed to be environmentally safe and the Product Data sheet says it can be used on the inside of water tanks and other surfaces continually exposed to water or moisture.

Does anyone have any experience with this product?

Do you think it will work?

I'm getting 1 litre kits for $33.04 at a retailer in Canada, but the manufacturer is in Florida. I can give details if anyone is looking for this.

I Just posted a few pictures of my DIY background with rocks and caves under the Cichlid category. Go there to view them.
