My guess is that it was a repair but it looks like a good one. 12" wide is pretty big. Sounds like someone like me who wanted to over-do it.

I'm guessing the rest of the glass is 1/2" or 3/8"?

So it looks good, but I would test it just to make sure. Peace of mind, you know?

The most common cause of the center brace going is from someone trying to lift with it, not dropping the tank. That being said, unless the trim was replaced, it doesn't look like the trim had a center brace on it before... is that trim plastic and one piece? Perhaps that is original...

Oceanic tanks came from the factory with a glass center brace.

Can't say how old it would be, but a number of years ago, Oceanic was acquired by Aqueon (All Glass) and the original plant was closed. Oceanic tanks had the rep of being the the top tier of manufactured tanks. The age of the tank doesn't really matter, especially if it was well constructed. I have a tank, (badly) built by me in the 60s that is still in use.

So I've started to gather all my supplies needed for my 90g oceanic tank I've decided to build my own stand and figured I'd share some pics
Phase 1: frame

Phase 2: outside panels

Phase 3: Paint and doors
COMING SOON

Here's some inside looks at the frame supports. Idk how well you can see how I did it but Might as well show it




And here's a pic of my new and first canister filter. It's a sunsun/super.

I currently have a heater in my 29g I'm gonna put in my 90g but know I need another to put on the other side. Do you guys recommend any specific heater? And I'm not sure what wattage the heater I already have is but would I need a 200w or 300w to pair with it? The light fixture I'm gonna get is the three bulb t5ho. And possibly down the road I may consider co2. If I can afford it.
