Is this tank safe to use?

So I bought a 650 litre tank. I was very pleased with it until......... I chipped it during transportation
Is it still safe to use?
I've started filling it up just to see what happens. I don't think it will be an issue now but worry about longevity?

Not worth the peace of mind another tank would give you.

agree.


However if that chip is on the bracing at the top it should be safe. might want to keep an eye on it to see if a crack starts.




my .02

maintain Fw and marine system with a strong emphasis on balanced, stabilized system that as much as possible are self substaning.

have maintained FW systems for up to 9 years with descendants from original fish and marine aquariums for up to 8 years.

With no water changes, untreated tap water, inexpensive lighting by first starting the tank with live plants (FW) or macro algae( marine)

I think it is at the top.

You might consider taking it to a glass shop and see if they can use something round out the entire edge where the chip is.

Aquarium
Personally, if that was my tank, I'd just get a strip of glass or perspex & silicone the strip over the chip.

Then face the "damaged" side against the wall.
