Default Fixing a broken GLASS aquarium with ACRYLIC

I have a glass aquarium with a broken side panel 12" x18".

I am considering replacing this side panel with an acrylic end piece.

Has anyone done this?

I assume that one can use silicone to stick the glass and acrylic
together. Any recommended types?

Also how much thicker are the panels of an acrylic aquarium compared
to an equivalent glass aquarium?

Thanks
