Step 1: Selecting the Glass

Select a piece of glass that fully covers the crack or cut a piece to fit, i used an old photo frame.

Step 2: Sticking and Sealing

Put Lots of Silicone All over the crack and on the area the new glass will lay on.

Place the glass on the INSIDE of the tank on top of the silicone and Gently but firmly press it into place.

The Weight of the water inside the tank will press down evenly on the new glass when you fill your tank meaning there is little pressure on the old crack. I did this repair you see in the video 2 years ago.
