Default Crazy Glue Question

so I snapped a piece of plastic off of my AC110 filter and wondering if crazy glue will work to hold it back together.

Unfortunately it broke in a spot that if I don't fix it, it will leak water everywhere.

Any suggestions would be helpful!!!!!

I bet I know the spot. It's right at the ramp as the water flows back into the tank. Right? I'm not sure about crazy glue. I used a epoxy made for glueing corals in to tanks.

I would use aquarium silicone or like Jim says the "coral glue" sounds like it would work too.
