Top support for 150 gallon aquarium

Hi,

I recently purchased an old 150 gallon tank (72" x 28" x 18") that I am currently refurbishing prior to set up. It had a 24" x 17" glass support piece that was affixed to the top of the tank in the midddle but it has come unattached. I plan on reattaching it because I've been told that without it there for support, the pressure of the water against the front glass will crack or break it without that extra support. Can anyone recommend the best type of expoxy or glue to reattach this?

Thanks for your help in advance!

Greg
