Go to an LFS and buy a bulkhead then go buy a plug that fits in the bulkhead. install the bulkhead and plug and that should solve your issue unless the hole is on the bottom of your sump.

Do that ^^^. but if you do decide to patch it, make sure you put the patch is on the inside of the tank, that way the pressure of the water is helping keep it sealed.

Installing a bulk head and plug is probably your best bet and easiest solution IMO. You can go to tap plastics and purchase acrylic cement and another small piece of acrylic and try to glue another one in. Mohaynow is spot on if you want to glue another one in make sure to glue it on the inside.
