It's on the bottom, you won't see it anyway. But I wouldn't just try to patch it... glass does flex, and ultimately a patch will fail. A piece of glass that size won't cost more than a few bucks.
Thats whsat I did with an old 65g. I however used Lexan. Its a quick easy fix and you only loose a ¼''.

Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils...

Minimum requirements means minimum happiness.
