I am big fan of white portland cement, it takes time to dry but when it is dry it is part of stone structure..

I was looking for material that I can use in my sump to keep my rocks elevated so that I can install power heads to shake up the detritus that will be getting accumulated over the time without me moving the rocks. FRP materials is something that I had in my mind and I wanted to make sure that I can something strong, made out of FRP and 1 size for stability and of course at the right price, so past week I bought these grates which are sold by zoro on jet.com for 36 bucks each with free shipping if I bought 2 pcs. So I bought it and I was afraid that they will be flimsy and weak, I got the delivery today and I am pretty impressed about the material, size and how well it is built. I might buy more of these to make cat walk to mount corals, we will see but these are what I am going to use in my sump and I am using 1.5 " street tee that will go under this and rock will sit on these grates, pumps will move water on the rock and under these grates to keep everything suspended. more pictures will be loaded when I add rock to the sump later this week..

I would slot 1" PVC cut piping spread along the bottom to elevate as 3450500 stated.

I will use the 1 inch pvc pipes and cut slots and slide them on where supports cross, to raise them high around 5 or 6 inches so that pumps can sweet under the grates
