    That the side panel or base? Side panel cannot be replaced but base panel can... Ive seen some drill the chip out and glue a piece of glass on the inside... Similar as to covering overflow holes

    Does it leak at the moment?

    Two options:
    1. Cut away some silicone to make the corner "square". Glue small piece of glass into place with silicone. Use tank as quarantine in your garage and get another tank.

    2. Chuck the tank out and get another tank.

    I will go with option 1.

    If it does not leak, I will do a freshwater test for a week and see what happens. Those chips do not lead to cracks normally.

    I would go with option one. At least you know that in the garage you wont flood the house.
