Dung from any animal will contain lots of bacteria and ammonia, neither of which is the greatest thing to add to an aquarium. If you can be sure never to disturb the layer with the dung, such as by pulling out rooted plants, it might work very well. But, if that stuff gets into the water column it means an almost certain outbreak of algae, especially green water.
