I did not use any braces on mine. Don't feel there is need. They are small enough that the pressure is not too high. Just be sure not to remove any silicone from the corners other than the lid.

Herp tanks do have a center brace sometimes, but they also have grooves in the plastic rim around the top that allow screens to slide in. This looks like an Aquatic tank to me. But that's with the...
