Putting a new bottom bead of silicone, IMHO is a bandaid solution and I would suggest cutting out the"corner sealing bead" and putting in a bottom EuroBrace. Not only will it seal the leak but give more bonding surface to hold the panes in place.

I do this with all "off the shelf" aquariums that the client wanted for that piece of mind of never having a leak and blow out.
