Chipped Tank- Should I Use It?

    I dropped my glass aquarium lid into my tank and it chipped the very bottom. I'm concerned it will get worse if I continue to use the tank. It's a 37g. Also, no damage to sides of tank whatsoever. There are a couple tiny scratches and one chip, no cracks. I absolutely don't want to risk the tank leaking or breaking over time. Is it worth it to use it or should I replace the tank?

    I personally do not see a big deal, but if you feel safer replacing it, then go for it.

    As long as it holds water, don't worry about it.

    Keep a close eye on it, just to make sure no cracks develop around it. But, I think you're fine.
