I agree. Maybe run a small triangular circle on the bottom around the hole to create a drip edge so any leaks won't follow the bottom of the bed to funny spots. I like any leaks to follow the pipeing/tubing to get closer to where it belongs in the sump.
Maybe also add a ring on the inside for a rubber o-ring or to pack some vasiline into to make the stand pipe more water proof?
Actually, this has me thinking: if I want to use separate pipe out the bottom anyway, why have a stand pipe in the print at all? I could save a lot of print time by omitting it, and then you just push your pipe through to the appropriate height, seal it by whatever means are convenient, and off you go.
