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?

its up to you but i would reseal the whole edge.. that way your not scrabling to empty it if it starts to leak down the road...

hmm hard to decide..makes me nervous. If its not leaking yet i don't think i ll mess with the seals.
