My friend has done it before with a 10gallon running for a year with no disasters. he used the pink foam from homedepot, I forgot what thickness but it was slightly thicker than flush, with water poured in it leveled itself out & acted as a support.

Again do this at your own risk & keep in mind even though the crack is only 2 1/2 inches it will spread over time. Idk how much used 30 gallon tanks go for in your area but around here they can be had 15-50 used..sometimes even free which is far better than the risk
