My friend has an aquarium she is willing to give me, but it has a crack in it. Does anyone know of a good way to seal it, that will not hurt the fish? Thank you in advance.

Honestly, I wouldn't risk trying to seal it, especially if it's a big crack. I would definitely get a professional's opinion. Of course they are going to tell you to buy a new tank so then they get the profit if you go to a store. You should definitey try to ask someone who doesn't work in a store. Maybe call some type of professional, or even call the company that made the tank and see what they do suggest.

Is the crack within the big portion of the glass? If yes, rather purchase a new one. I don't think that one will last long enough even if repaired.

I am sure there are repair kits out there. However, if the crack is too extreme then it probably would be best to purchase a new aquarium.

I would not use a cracked tank. What size is this tank?
If it is a 10 gallon, you can buy them for around $10.
Not worth risking killing your fish and flooding your home
