    What would I need to do to treat it to make it ready for my aquarium? Would it fall apart? Should I seal it to the back of the tank or what? Will superglue work if I do need to seal it?

    As I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

    No Kuli, the CA (super) glue puts out toxic substances as it cures. Though the glue is hard as stone in a hurry, it outgases bad stuff for days.
    Use silicone, as Algenco suggested, or underwater epoxy if you want to keep it there forever.
    The pennywort will grow right up it like ivy. You could also do Java fern and moss on it and even the African Bolbitus.
