What type of rock?

Hello AA! I am upgrading my 60 gallon SA cichlid tank to 125 gallon mbuna tank. I am planning to use the type of rock in this image (image I got from web). My question is what type of rocks are those? Also how can I keep them from moving or sliding? Thanks!

Aquarium safe silicone will make tem stick. In the wild most mbuna live in straight up rock piles so you could also try just doing a random pile of rocks. My best mbu tank was done that way.

The are just some river or cobblestones you can find them at any landscaping place for ten cents a pound. Like the above posts says silicone them into small groups so you can move them if needed and this prevents falling
