Not the best choice, use aquarium silicon.

You could try an epoxy like one of these.

I have never used it but I know some that have and have never had a problem with it. The arcsenic released is released at the time of the cure or bonding and very small amounts don't seem to have any residual effects. Make sure to rinse the article veru well to remove and dust or aresnic possibly left over and it could work fine. I have even heard of those that use use it to secure coral and living rock unto the formations they want because the silicone is too bulky and won't cure fast enough.
