Bottom brace

I will be starting my 75 gallon tank back up in a couple months (after we sell and buy I new home). I have been lurking in here and on r2r. While just looking at the tank I noticed my bottom brace in one corner isn't touching the glass... I can't remember if it has always been like this or not. Any thoughts? Will it be ok?

Is it peeling back sort of thing or just loose?

There is no cracks in the plastic or bubbles in the silicone.. The three other sides of the tank are flush with the brace.

Then I wouldn't be worried about it. The tank bracing itself looks tight, just the area between the stand? and the tank.

No I'm talking about the bottom brace at the corner of the glass. Click image for larger version

I dont see why it would be an issue.

I just wasn't sure if the glass would eventually split and leak. It would suck to have 75 gallons of water on the floor of a new house.
