I have a glass five gallon with a scratch in the bottom glass panel from being irresponsible with a hardscape rock. It's ~1" (2.5 cm) long, can catch your nail a little bit, not close to the frame, and is pretty visible. The glass is 3mm thick. Should I worry about it?

Welcome to the forum! I don't think that's something to be overly concerned about. Could you put up a picture?

Depends on how deep the scratch is. If it's slightly in the surface of the glass, there shouldn't be any worries about it.
