Did I botch the seals?

I had to reseal my 135 gallon tank - it was my first time doing it and I just filled it today and noticed there are a few little bubbles under the seal. No water is seeping through but will any bubbles weaken or cause the seal to fail? Should I re-seal again? or just let it be as long as it is holding water ok?

You are probably fine but if it were me I wouldn't want to risk having a 135 gallons of water on my floor when I wake up one morning.

Like I told my last wife, I says, "Honey, I never drive faster than I can see. Besides that, it's all in the reflexes."

Not just that, but if it just begins to leak a little bit, you'll have to empty it out, move the fish, substrate, etc. Might as well re-do it now while the tank is empty.
