Yeah I was thinking 40. The 16 specifically says ABS too but its not a good bond. I was also thinking I could just get abs glue and mix it with 16 but its for my cross braces on the top of my 225 and it would suck if it didn't work.

It will glue them together. I won't give you a guarantee but so far, 40 is what I found that works the best of what I tried. 3, 4, 16 and 40. Of those, 40 works the best and its what they recommend for gluing ABS to acrylic.

Why not use acrylic?

What should I use?
Acrylic and Weldon 3/4 :)

40/42 is all I know that works. The 1802 that Doug mentioned says for ABS-Acrylic but I have never used it so I can't say anything about it.

How big are the pieces you are gluing on? Pics of it? And, how thick is the ABS and Acrylic?

The ABS is the trim piece for the top of the tank and the acrylic is 3/8 inch thick by 4 inches wide. I'm planning on putting 2 of the acrylic pieces on it evenly spaced out.
