Default Derimming - 29g - 36x12x16 - 3/8" thick?

DIY experts, I have a question!

Do you think it is safe to remove the top rim only of a 30g tank that's 36" long built from 3/8 inch glass.

The DIY aquarium calculator here http://www.theaquatools.com/building-your-aquarium says that 1/4 inch would be fine with a safety factor of "3.8" - but I'm not sure how this translates to rimless.

In this case would it be best to add a glass brace?

Thanks so much,
Rob
