Silicone in my 210g reef

I purchased a 210g aquarium from a person on craigslist. I looked it over before buying and it was holding water just fine because he had it still running. My only concern is what the silicone looks like between the glass pieces. Attached are some photos. Would like to know your thoughts.

If I were you just to be on the safe side. I would put brand new sealant. That's just me. Imagine what a pain it would be to have to change it once you already have it established.
