DIY refugium leaks

I just finished assembling my sump last night and today, I filled up the chambers to test for leaks. There is a slow leak from my refugium backwards into the bubble trap. When left, the bubble trap takes a while to fill up, and even then, doesn't fill up to the edges. Do you think this is worth resealing that panel or is this problem minor enough to ignore?

I have a slow leak in my bubble trap and things run without issues. I'm assuming that the bubble trap isn't filling up due to lack of water volume and once fully set up and running it will be perfectly fine.
