Concrete or hydraulic cement. Be aware that there may be a period of curing and leaching that changes the water chemistry. I think that a safer idea would be to carve out some limestone or coral rock. (IIRC, plaster contains gypsum, and gypsum hydrates, so not a good choice for water stuff).

The cement is going to be shaped,thoroughly dried and painted before it ever goes into the Aquarium or i should call it a paludarium.
Something like this is what i'm striving for=
