superglue gel or epoxy resin migiht work better. Either way I'd lower the water level on it till you fix it so that it's not bowing the glass out.

Thanks so much. I'm letting water out now. I just don't want it to shatter. Worst mess I will eever clean up. Any specific brand

Not in particular. With superglue I've had better luck using the gel since it goes on thick.

Great. Right now I took half the water out and I redid the silicone on it and I'm gonna let that cure again and tomorrow if it doesn't work then I'm gonna get the super glue gel or maybe steel epoxy
