Watch out, Raymond!! That piece of glass adds support to the front and back
glass.  If it is removed, the front and back will bow out, and the glass might
even break.  I had a friend who broke the top support on a 110 gallon tank, and
the glass bowed four or five inches.  Even if the tank doesn't break, it
certianly won't be right.

Maybe you can replace it with a smaller brace made of metal, I don't know.  I
certianly wouldn't want to try.
