Doesnt appear to be melted all the way through.

So the good news is that it's not melted all the way and it doesn't appear to be near enough to the center brace to be an issue. You just may want to test the tank outside before filling it in the house
As for the reptile to aquarium issue, you take a chance when doing this. I spent 40 years in the pet business so I know it to be true in some cases, not all. To error on the side of caution, I always suggest a new tank for fish. Obviously, if these were aquatic turtles this wouldn't be an issue. However, reptile tanks these days are made with thinner glass than fish tanks are so the bigger they go, the greater the risk. Also, rodents are known to chew on the silicone sealant that holds the tank walls together besides the "pee pee factor". I don't know about yours but having a tank split open due to missing or chewed silicone would really put a damper on my day
That's all I was trying to say
