I would keep watch on it. The plastic you melted may be brittle and crack due to the vibrations from the motor. Yes, it may not be leaking now, but I have visions in my head of it recracking in the middle of the night and leaking all over the floor. That would be my luck.

IMHO I would replace it ASAP, but I always tend to err on the side of caution. You can keep the filter media and use it to seed the new one.
