I think just some pexiglass and aquarium silicone would do the trick? i'm thinking it's about .5 gallons.

Well, pretty much all glass tanks are made with them, so I'd say so. :P

That is definitely half with silicone. Ya it holds well my 20 gallon is held with it!

You can fin aquarium silicone at most pet stores for about $6-$10 for a good size tube. And holding only a couple pounds isn't a big deal anyway!

Good luck!
