I saw another DIY where there were two holes drilled on each side and a replacement brace was connected with nylon bolts.

I have a question since you are asking about a broken piece to a tank. I was wondering if my tank might break apart any time soon because it seems that the glue that holds each glass together is pealing off. It's a 55 gallon too.

There are 2 different applications of silicone in a tank. There is the silicone that holds the tank together (between the panes) and the fillet seam inside the tank that is an insurance against leakage. A properly built tank should hold water without the interior seams.
