Glue Rocks Together Or 3D-BackGround

Now i have been back and forth with making my own 3D BackGround and glueing some slate rocks and making them like a 3D backGround. Has anyone glued rocks together to make a whole setup if so can you share your experience or any advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated i want to figure out which route would be better and safer for the fish !!

I think that would work fine. I think it would be cooler personally if you make your own 3D background that would be awesome
