    Hi,

    I want to build a media basket for a Boyu 550. Can i use PVC weld/glue to glue the egg crate to Perspex? Is it safe to use in the tank, won't contaminate the water or anything?

    Or is there something else I should use to glue the stuff?

    anyway silicone would be easier to remove later on if you want to
