Any glue that won't dissolve or cause any harm in the water I guess

30 gallon-2 black mollies, 1 red wag platy, 1 dwarf gourami, 2 giant danios, 3 marble hatchets

125 gallon- 1 black ghost knife, 1 senegal bichir, 1 blue jack dempsey, 1 needle nose gar, 1 red tailed shark

an aquariums safe silicon would be your best bet.
a few people have done this in the D.I.Y section, you should have a look and check out thier ideas and the problems they had to over come

Any silicone that is 100% silicone and only 100% silicone. No mildew resitance, no mold inhibitors, Nothing else in it. GE makes a silicone that is 100% VOC which is pure silicone.
