You need to get an acrylic solvent cement to weld the pieces together, from a plastic supply place. Silicone won't cut it.
Join a fish club. Don't have one in your area? Start one.

Weld-on is the product you want. There are a few different kinds and each drys at a different rate. Do a search for Weld-on and you will find what you are looking for.
