Aquarium crack

I was doing my weekly water change when I noticed a small 1 1/2 inch long crack on the right tank wall it is as big as a hair but I'm freaking out, should I get a new one right away?

certainly, but I would replace it as soon as possible. You wouldn't want to take the chance

Most importantly, keep the filter cartilage. it contains your good bacteria. makes the cycling process painless and faster

Right that totally slipped my mind- how long should I give the tank to condition? Will adding cultured gravel help?
