Could you use the duct tape for strength to hold, then coat the tape with silicon to make it water tight ? (i.e. if the water can't get to the tape, any nasty chemicals in the tape can't get to the tank, and the tape shouldn't become unglued).

i suppose it could work, the goal is to just prevent leeching...BUT...ducttape isnt permanent, it will eventually come unstuck, so armed with that information...why not design a set up that you can bank on not falling apart?

the aquarium safe 2 part epoxy is permanent, safe, and will do most of the things duct tape will do. anyway, just my opinion.
