I made this tank topper for a 10 gal, it is made from PVC except for the metal hardware.

With the tank upright, I used silicon to hold the top on, and it works great. Then, I had the idea to flip the cage so it sits as shown with the door in front. This gives a bit more floor space, and could even be stackable for two tanks.

Problem is, the silicon will not hold very well after opening and closing over and over in this new orientation. I placed some nylon straps as shown in the meantime, and that holds nicely.

Anybody know what type of glue might be appropriate in this case?
