Leak in Overflow

I have a acrylic overflow and It drips every second onto my floor. Its leaking in the conner where the 2 peices are glued together. Is there a silicon or something I can put over the leak? I have marineland silicone but I dont know If I can use it?

Dont sound like too big of a leak or deal . . .

 

Take it off, dry it, and squirt some superglue gel into the leaking corner.

 

Let that dry completely, and put it all back.

 

Silicone gonna take at least 24hrs to seal/dry and 48hrs to fully cure, the superglue gel will be done in minutes.

I'm not in a rush to get this running. I just didn't know If silicone would stick to acrylic to prevent leaking. It does not have any strength bearing. Thanks for the replies Ill give this a try.

The only thing about superglue gel is it will dry in a butt ugly mess, You can smooth out silicone to make it look decent. Just depends on if the location will be visible or not.
