It depends on how bad it is.

When we were getting started on our rebuilding project in our fishroom, we had one of our 75 gallons in the yard and it ended up getting chipped in the corner. It was a really old tank and one of my favorites so I tried to justify using it to myself... but in the end, I just couldn't do it. The chip in the glass went clear through down into the silicone on the inside of the tank. I had to give it to a reptile keeper.

Is there any way you could post a photo of the chip? Maybe we could help you decide for sure.

it looks like the adhesion area did not get affected, so there is nothing to reseal with the product in your first post. looks still usable to me, but I can't say "hey! i had the same chip and it lasted for years without leak"
