    With a good adhesive, like one of the Pratley range, might be possible.

    Do you know if the black and clear parts are both acrylic?

    there is a local product called "steenvas" it is excellent and can fix that! It is a special 2 part moldable epoxy and is safe for marine use after it cures, i have used it for years and none of the others can beat it for strength and adhesion! It gets very sticky, i wouldnt use it for corals but for fixing equipment it is the best!
