Chip out while drilling tank

I just finished drilling my first overflow hole and 2 return holes. Since it was my first time, I was unsure on how much pressure to apply while drilling. The first 2 holes resulted in very little chip outs on the inside of the tank, and passed a leak test, but the third hole resulted in a chip out about a half of inch and can even barely be seen after the bulkheads are screwed in. This hole leaked a little when I performed a leak test, so it needs to be fixed, and I was wondering what the best way to fix it would be. I suppose I could silicone it, but i would rather it not be visible if possible. I was also thinking of siliconing the o-ring to the actual tank by putting a small layer on the ring before I screw in the bulkheads. Just want to see what everyones thoughts on this would be. Thanks.

I would just put some silicone in the hole (between the nut and flange) and let it ooze out and then wipe it down after it's tight
