Products that will bond to acyrlic?

Hi Guys

I am building a 2000 litre aquarium but i am trying something different. i have a ply tank lined with 3mm mirror acrylic and 20mm clear acyrlic on the front.
I have filled it twice and twice it has leaked. first time i used a aquarium silicone and 2nd time used an underwater polymer but neither seem to stick to acrylic. i was very carefull to make sure it was very clean, second time i even went over the joins with sandpaper.
So before i rip out the acrylic and fiberglass the tank anybody know of a product that will bond to acyrlic?
many thanks guys James

You need an acrylic adhesive. It will permanently bond the pieces together, so you need to get it right the first time. Weld-On 3 Acrylic Adhesive - Pint: Amazon.com: Industrial & Scientific
