That said, Mean Harri's the expert, not me. Plus, that's a really, really deep chip. I would be pretty paranoid about using a tank with a chip that deep, even if there were no visible runs.
Look at the straight edge formed by the other piece of glass meeting the chipped one. The edge is straight, then you can see the protrusion, straight again, another protrusion. It's worse than a chip. Also, it looks like some deformity (semicircles) that extend from the chip towards our left.
IMO, that tank is toast. Sorry. :(
