Just use common sense when stacking them...

I've never had a cave in. Siliconing them together makes it a pain in the arse to change it up.

I'll prolly later on silicon some suction cups to the back of the flat one on the top to give it more support.As of now they are just sitting there, after sitting them there i gave them a bump and tap and they are good and stable for the time being.

a way of making good caves is to use clay flowerpots then hide them with the rocks

I recently took a bunch of rocks that I found along a river in the North Carolina to make a bunch of caves in my tank.

I was worried there might be some bacteria or something that would hurt my tank, but after a quick rinse off they don't seem to have had any effect. My only problem is those rocks are so dang heavy, I'm worried if they accidently fall (from either a fish bumping it or just accidently dropping one during setup) they could crack the glass on the bottom of the tank.

As for the caves... my fish love it. My puffer hangs out under the rocks 75% of the time, but in this picture he just happened to be out on a walkabout:
