Well, I know slate can come in different thickness. Is there a reason you are worried about weight? I mean if that is the case you could always cut up some big lava rocks to stick them on the back of the tank. If you used the egg crate idea you could make the background in different sections to make it easier for any deep aquarium maintenance. This is something I have seen people do that were into reef aquariums. Sometimes they even drilled holes into the rock that were big enough to put a zip tie through. It made it easier to re-arange their display if they needed to.

I hope this helps.
