I'm planning on making a sump out of a 20 high with some acrylic baffles. What silicone or other glue do you recommend?

I use the one with the little symbol of a fishy that says "Aquarium Safe"...believe it's one of the loctite brand, clear silicone.

When you use silicone it's not going ot adhere to the acrylic, you're just creating a wedge to hold it in place.
