Default Glue broken large ceramic pot

I have a large ceramic pot measure 24" in diameter. I use it in summer to plant some water plants and put a few small fishes in. Recently it broke (see photo).

Can it be fixed, like using Epoxy or Acrylic Glue? If yes, which glue is better to use, Epoxy or Acrylic?

Thank you.

Wuzzat: Might be hard to keep water in it for the fish with a hole in the bottom.

That is two duh' awards for me in a short time.
Less rum, more coke may help.

JoeD; Some people really like their pot and want to use it as long as they can.

ccpyue -

Could it have left out in the previous winter and allow small freezing induced cracks that opened up with the water and different temperatures?

With cracks, all it takes is a little "bump" to hatch the egg.

Might be hard to keep water in pot after repair. Mebbee you can find a plastic bowl that would fit inside.
Is that your betta?
