if its acrylic you can patch it, but glass will be a problem. the only cure is to replace the entire pane of glass or replace the tank.

where is the crack?

I would suggest you do something before it gets worst and shatters all over the floor

are you sure its a crack? and not a deep scratch??? it wont look very nice, BUT if it is a crack and it is glass, i think you can get apane of glass silicone it on to the crack, then silicone round the edges making a air tight seal, and then it should be ok

if its glass you will need to replace the pane or tank as nitro advised but you do need to act soon as the water pressure will make it worse and you could loose your fish

I've seen a couple tanks at a petstore once that have silicone on the crack, it doesn't look that great but I would do it so you don't come home one day with water everywhere. 125 gallons is a lot of water especially when its all over the floor.

if its not deep, you can put silicone. if its deep and long. you should get a new tank or replace the whole sheet of glass.

looking at that crack. i would replace the whole sheet of glass. or get a new aquarium.
