your going to want to use either aquarium safe silicon or 100% silicon with no additives. i personally would scrape that entire seam as clean as possible with a razor blade and then re-seal the entire seam in one shot. silicon sticks best glass to glass.

it may be cheaper/less of a headache to pickup another used or even new 30 gallon tank.
