Is this chip worth concern, or will it be fine leaving it how it is? I don't want to ignore it and come home to find an exploded tank.

It wouldn't let me sleep. I'm a freak about tank being flawless when it comes to glass. I would replace it the same moment I found that but it's just me ;)

The damage is minor but over time the tank sealant would get weaker so that spot will mostly be the place for its first leakage.
My 10 gal and 5 gal has cracks on the edges but it’s small tanks so I just stick some sealant glue on it and some any sharp edges with very fine sand paper.

Okay so then maybe I don’t need a new one just yet.

I'm the same way. I'd replace.
