Chip in 20 gallon long tank


I have a 20 gallon long glass tank. I recently put a chip in the outside corner when moving it. Do you still think I can safely fill the tank with water? If not, can it be resealed?

i believe you should conceal it, just to be 1000% sure it wont leak.

That is prob all right. It is on the edge of a pane, but the seam is still sealed & that is not particularly a load bearing point. I had a chip like that on a 10 & I used it without problems. 20 isn't that big so the water load won't be too high on the seams.
