What is a bottom brace? Braces at the top of some tanks are needed to ensure that the open top of a tank does not bulge when filled with water. Since the bottom of a tank is not open, braces are generally not needed.

If you mean the plastic frame around the bottom and top of tanks, I believe they are mostly decorative, unless the top frame contains a center brace. I don't think not having a plastic frame at the bottom of a tank would make any difference, but somebody more knowledgeable about this issue might correct me.
