sealing a few nicks on the outer seals?

I found a 90 gallon aquarium for 80 bucks on craigslist. There are no leaks that i can tell as of yet but i did notice that the previous owner used a metal algae scraper and made a few nicks on the sealant that extends away from the corner. Would it be okay to just use a little more sealant over these spots or do i really need to redo the entire seal?
