Question What to do if there is a crack on the glass of tank?

Do they make some kind of glue or something to fix a cracked glass on the tanks?


That has always worried me. What would I do if I got a crack in my tank?

Any 100% silicone sealant will often serve to temporariliy fix a tank, and they even make some specifically marketed for aquariums, but for the most part if you get a crack, you'll want to replace the tank. Especially if its a larger tank. Water is pretty heavy and if the tank is weakened, its only a matter of time before something more drastic happens.
