maybe check with some of the online retailers, or a plastics supplier, and get one of those strip hinges. I've also seen regular and piano style hinges made out of acrylic, you may be able to solvent weld something like that on.

Also, check the areas near where they sell acrylic, etc. in the hardware store, sometimes they have sealants/caulks stocked there that will adhere to acrylic (but I've got no idea how suitable they are for a tank).
