I just bought a 125 gallon tank. My intention is to put my 5 aquatic turtles inside, but the bottom has been repaired. It still has the warning label about not drilling it because it's tempered glass. It had 2 hairline fractures in separate corners, that the aquarium store told him to seal smaller panes of glass on top of (which he did). The fractures were small, the repairs are less than 5 inches square. Other than the repairs the tank is brand new.

He says it holds water, but will it be safe to use? I honestly can't see the fractures looking in from the top and my turtles are much more likely to survive should the repairs fail than a tank of fish; but I don't want to risk them. Any advice?
The tank is new, but it is defective. Ease your mind. Take it back for a refund.
