Resealing 120 Gallon Aquarium

I have a 120 Gallon aquarium that I want to reseal. I previously installed top bracing and I am wondering if it would be worth doing similar bracing to the bottom. The top is like Euro Bracing with center support. Would this add structural support or just be a nightmare?

I have resealed smaller tanks before, 30 Gallon, but never a large tank like this.
I know similar principals will apply but any advice is appreciated

Thank You!

So, I decided to just go with it and "see what happens". This weekend I got some help to lift down the tank. I have stripped off the silicone inside with a razor blade (careful to not cut between the glass). cleaned up any leftover residue with a bit of alcohol and ran a fresh bead of silicone on all inside seams. I will be slowly adding water after the silicone ahs cured. I will update my threat to let you know how it went. Maybe this will help someone in the future
