    Hi

    I used two boxes of slate cladding for the back of my tank (precut not everyone's taste, but worked for my application). It wasn't easy though, then with some leftover pieces I made small structures for cave dwellers...

    Notes:
    You can cut it with an angles grinder, hell of a lot of dust
    You have to rinse and wipe it thoroughly to get rid of the dust, even out of the box.
    You can stick it, once clean and dry with marine silicone.
    Didn't give cloudiness or change the pH.
