Resealing a tank question

I was going to reseal a tank I got off craigslist. I have this huge piece of glass in tge middle what is the purpose of it can I get rid of it or cut it in two pieces and space it out. Im using it as a reef tank and im wondering how much light will be blocked out bc of its thickness its about 3/8 in thick. Any thoughts.

Or maybe drill holes into the brace I have now so more light will get thru?
