If it's composed of an Epoxy Resin, then I would use an Epoxy Resin to complete the fix. Just after reassembly, I would make certain it completely air dry and harden. Your main concern is to keep any toxins in the glue out of the aquarium. After hardening and fully drying, it shouldn't decompose into the water. But before you do, I'd go ahead and read all precautions and check with a local expert on the subject. Just to be on the safe side.
