I have an older protein skimmer that the inlet pipe broke free from the body. what kind of glue or anything will seal pvc pipe to acrylic tube? so I can use my skimmer again?

I use E6000 from Home Depot on a pile of stuff aquarium related. It is strong as hell and remains just a bit flexible so there is no issue with cracking. It is currently holding my acrylic overflow box to my glass tank wall. I have also used it on rock.

There's a type of superglue that is actually similar to acrylic, it's called cyber bond apollo, used it for a situation very similar, never had a problem with leaking or breaking after I glued it the first time.
