Default Built my first Tank and Found a deep scratch

Hello There.

Tried building a tank with Crystal Glass 6mm thick with a tempered bottom. The outer dimensions are 60x36.2x35cm.

This is the first time sealing so the sealing is messy to the degree you can see a piece of tape that I was using to make the sealant straight but the tank holds, I filled the tank three times: 1st for 1.5 hours, 2nd for 3 hours and third just to check if there is any leaks after I cut some silicone to make it look less messier.



When I painted the background is when I noticed the scratch, thought were a silicone thread, which I made worse by a razor. The scratch feels deep, a millimeter deep. So should I worry that the scratch will get bigger with time and with the pressure of water on the tank? There are some slight scratches but aren't visible unless a light is directly hitting it.



Please help me, I don't know if I should plant this tank or ....
