Nick, I thought that might be a problem when I started but here's what I did.

I made sure I had a whole load of rocks before starting of all shapes and sizes, and made sure that the two surfuces of each rock I was sticking together had relatively flat edges, used quite a lot of sealant and then left them on a hard surface to dry.

My parents now have a large crater in their back garden where all the rocks used to be, but I have pointed out that this will be a good starting point if they ever decide to put a pool in

I like your idea, thank you for sharing! My big aquarium needs more decorations, that is for sure, and I would love to go with rocks, but everytime I go to the store to choose some, i just stand there, not knowing what to choose and how to arrange them in the tank.
