Chipped glass.

    So my mom hit the corner of the tank with a baking pan, the big chip on the bottom. And I noticed the chip on the top which has me more concerned. It’s located between the panels of glass but hasn’t breached up to the silicone. Should I be concerned yet or start looking for a replacement or can I use silicone to seal the chip between the panes?

    I do have a 180 waiting to be set up lol

    I asked a question about a glass chip at a LFS that is no longer in business, I was told "It isn't a problem, unless it starts leaking".....I was like "Thanks, super helpful"

    Doesn't look too bad. I haven't dealt with repairing chipped glass, but seems like it should be fine.

    I don't think I have any glass tanks that don't look like that

    No worries! Just a bit ugly but the bottom of the tank is the strongest part with the least pressure.
