Leaking 180 gal

Our 180 gallon turtle tank started leaking out of no where at the seal at the bottom of the tank. You can see from the pic how its pulling away from the side. On closer expection, its happening in a few different places but only leaking from that one spot. From what I've researched we need to remove all of the inner sealant, then reseal. Would you trust a 180 gallon to hold after being resealed? Too risky? Any tips?

I've heard of people doing it here but personally would just get a new (larger!) tank if it is going inside anywhere.
