Looks like the brace is cracked not the glass I can take off the brace and order a new one but that requires u draining the tank and wat not if I was u I would tape everything off and carefully silicone it

I would want to know what caused the crack in the brace? Was the tank handled improperly? What may the consequences be down the road if the tank structure was stressed?

I would query your neighbor about how it got cracked.
