Can I isolate the cracked part of my tank from the water?

Hi! After filling the tank, I noticed a leakage from a crack on the bottom corner of my fish tank. The crack is quite small and is just on the bottom panel. As a newbie I didn't know I should have made my tank stable.

Well, I wonder if I can somehow put glass panels with silicone to cover around the crack and isolate it so that water would not come in. Basically, that small volume will not be used. I heard that pasting it directly with a glass panel is the way to go but may come with a risk. So yeah, I just wonder if this idea I came up with would work or not.

Is the crack on the bottom or one of the upright panes?
