Need help with slate

I have some slate that I would like to put in my O tank, how would I clean the slate? I would like to stack them up like some people have done with their tanks.

rinse them with hot water. if you are planning on doing caves, get a tube of silicone to glue the pieces together otherwise it can collapse and injure your fish

Be careful as sharp edges can cut a large bodied fish, like an ocellatus. Also, when he gets larger, he will more than likely redecorate for you, so I agree with the comment about silicone, he won't be able to redecorate as much if it's all one piece
