What kind if cement did you use? Just regular stuff? Or did it have to be something special?

At the moment this tank has
Thorichthys Ellioti
Geophagus sp. "Tapajos Orange Head"
Satanoperca leucosticta
a handful of random catfish, common pleco, choc pleco, pepps, bristlenose, L numbers, raphael and SAE and clown loaches.

Wow... Amazing job!!! I have been debating on the type of BG I wanted to put in my new 150 gal project... I'm now inspired! A few questions if you don't mind....
How did you run your plumbing?

I am looking into doing this with my new tank but instead of the cement I was going to use the black pond foam and just either epoxy or silicone colored sand, real rocks and even some tile rock on to it. Im afraid of the leeching since I wont really be able to soak this before.
Any thoughts on this design choice?
