I agree with the above. That appears structural and you may or may not need it. I would drain the tank at least partially, and then use the guitar string idea Ibrahim mentioned. i would then think of something to use as a center brace In the place of all of that thick glass. A border of glass around the perimeter might suit you, which has also been mentioned, and is called Euro bracing.

I got it off w a really thin putty knife. For some reason the guitar strings wouldn't really do it. ( I used the hi E). I'm placing bracing around the edges and it seems fine. I think the glass is so thick it doesn't even matter!!!

Wow that's a some really strong silicone. I don't think you will need the bracing but over time the tank will bow so it's better to add a brace
