Center brace repair

What are your opinions on the stability/durability of this 75g with a repaired center brace & is there anything else I could do to ensure it IS stable. At $75 it would allow me to get rid of another of my smaller tanks😏

Talk em down !
New is $99 at my LFS.
I paid $75 for a new top band for my used 75g that had a broken brace .
You can Euro brace with glass but that may not be a whole lot cheaper if at all if you have to buy glass..

Truly is cause I would love another 75g but even patched with JB Weld not sure I trust that brace to hold on the long run amd a leaking tank is the last thing I want😕

Post a pic of the fix? There are ways to make sure it will hold, aesthetics can be an issue though

Are you on a PC/MAC or using the mobile app? You could try mailing the image to yourself. Some email programs give you the option to resize an image. Select a smaller size and try posting that one.
