Chipped corner of tank - how serious is this?

So, while in the planning phase of my next tank (75 gallon), somebody walked past it with the glass recycling and hit the corner with a bottle... chipping it. After some quick domestic violence (not really), I calmed down and realized that it was probably not as bad as it looks. Just sucks that it's on the front pane of glass (this is a drilled aquarium).

Let me know what you think. Would you use this tank?





Thanks,
Micah

That's tiny compared to the thickness of the glass..... Ain't going to hurt a thing. I've had tanks filled with much larger gouges than that.

+1. I should upload a photo of the chip in the corner of my tank, it makes this one look like a scratch.

How did you repair that crack? Very curious.

It was like that when I bought the tank. I didn't notice it until I got home. I probably wouldn't have bought it if I would have noticed it

I believe they used some type of resin to fix it. It's as hard as glass and doesn't leak. Been set up for 6 weeks. I wouldn't worry about the chip you have. It's not very bad
