If the fitting has pipe threads then Teflon tape can help seal the gaps. If it's a barb type fit or a slip fit, then just a hose clamp should do it. If you're going to use pipe dope then make sure it's food-safe. If you use a solvent cement then you will not ever get stuff apart...
As it happens I just pulled the old fresh tank from our '74 this afternoon. It had hose clamps on all the fittings, no evidence of lubricant or sealer in any of the joints. The tank had some muddy water in it, but cleaned up pretty well with some warm soapy water and bleach... I may just re-use it.
