That's why large tanks have glass braces

Most tanks have the plastic trim just to look nice.
Like I said earlier you can replace it with new trim siliconed round the bottom. The new hood will help with the top if that is an issue also but I assume if the tank is big it will be braced top and bottom Roth glass .
Any pics available?
Obviously, you have no idea what you are taking about.
There are many people on here with tanks that are 125 GALLONS (473 liters) or larger, including myself, and they all have plastic trim. Do some research before spouting out bogus information.
