Default Waterfall safe glue / Gorilla Glue?

Hi all, i'm currently trying to build a waterfall in my viv. To do it i plan to block off half of it, so it can be filled with water to supply the pump for it. An it will also have a section that will be teir water bowl. So in essence creating biological water system within the viv.
So, i'm making a plastic guard for the pump to hold back the bio drain an to make it easy to access an clean. But i dont know what glue to use for it. I've tried to use aquarium safe silicone but its too flimsy. I see people use Gorilla Glue, but i dont know if this will be safe to be submerged in their drinking water.
If it is, which one? Theres a few out there?!?

Any advice is much appreciated.

Rob

To be fair to the others we are being bombarded with loads of dodgy threads , one thought is they're from American teenagers on summer vacation .

Maybe yours has just got overlooked in the onslaught.

Sorry I'm American:/ but if you are still looking for an answer I don't think gorilla glue would be your best bet since it is only water resistant not water proof. if you are using it on a feature that is constantly in contact with water it will continually be tacky. Whether your tank is made of glass or acrylic is also really important since silicone doesn't stick to everything. Also there are silicone adhesives that are not water proof .
