135 Gallon Repair Help

I just recently purchased a 135 gallon aquarium on Craigslist with a stand for $75. I'm currently in the process of resealing it but the problem that I have is bracing. The top center brace was broken. What would be the best way to brace this tank?Click image for larger version

You could order another trim piece. Or you could look into euro bracing with glass.

Put frame from bottom on top.
The bottom doesn't need the brace.
What are the tank measurements?
It really doesn't look like a 135g.

The dimensions are 36x24x36. I can't find any info on this tank anywhere.
