    Silicon, but be sure to clean the glass with a strong acid first. If it's good enough to hold your tank together, it'll sure do for a little diffuser.

    Or Crazy Glue if you're good at it.

    Yes, silicon can do it but the outcome I think will be ugly..
    I was wondering if Loctite Super Glue fits the job, i.e. it's not toxic for the fish after it has dried.

    Super glue would work if it bonds glass. Some people plant their rhizomes on wood with the stuff.

    Super Glue Gel is easier to work with than the "regular".

    Thanks, I'll try to use super glue and see if it can handle the pressure.

    That happened to me as well. Used silicon. As mentioned, the result is ugly but you will still have a working diffuser.

    I don't know super glue, but (by its name) it will certainly do it. However, make sure this super glue is something that can be undone some how. The diffuser tube has a small hole and if super glue clogs it, you are super screwed.

    Silicon is something that you can remove if necessary.
