In theory, this would work because the glass is still supporting the weight of the water. The tape is just stoping the drip.

However long term, I wouldn't do this. This is a quick fix until you can get to the store the next day kind of thing.

Ok so I need turn my pump off for a couple of days to allow the water level to drop low enough. Should I put an airstone in the tank until the silicone dries? And it's not going to hurt my fish, will it?

You shouldnt need an airstone if your phs are making enough water movement. This will keep your water oxygenated. In my 36 fowlr i havent had a ph in it for a month due to unforeseen issues. Only prob has been gunk building up that ive been siphoning out.

But I will have to turn my ph off. So there would be no movement in my tank...

I wouldn't use an air bubble. Air is oxygenation and more oxygen raises ph even more. I'd silicone your tank. That's your best bet.
