    I've always had good luck with backpacks for tanks in the 30-50 gallon range, though I like the sump fed style better just because of maintenance ease.
    They are tough to octo-proof though !

    Superglue is safe, it was formulated for use in the human body. You might find it is too brittle for this application, though.
