    mate i am afraid that crack will definately run IMHO

    what thickness is the panel and what are its dimensions ?

    is the silicone gap between that piece of glass and the rest of the tank big anough to get a knife between the glass?

    it will definatley continue to run, maybe not today but more than likley when your tank is in full bloom. bite the bullet and repair now rather..
