Several adhesives can be used to bond it...

bonding uhmw - Google Search

The question though is whether those adhesives are aquarium-safe. My guess is "no".

true about them being aquarium safe. If I could just scuff it all up, "paint brush" on some silicone and roll it in sand it would be good enough to start with.

True... but they're both in the same family. With regards to bonding, what works for one should work for the other.

LOL maybe I should just stick with low tech and do the caveman thing... rocks and sticks .

I did come up with an idea for a bell jar, if that is what you call them.... The stuff you place above your CO2 line to collect it and have it dissolve into the water..... The little plastic thing that you get from gum ball machines. That might work to place the line under it so there is gas and water exchange.
