The cross bar on my tank or whatever you call the thing is very loose.

Its been put on with silicone i think, white clear stuff anyway, but its really really loose.

What should i do to fix?

Thanks in advance.

im actually not sure what it is, i know what your talking about though, support bar you would call that.

Im not sure what these two bars are for, maybe something to do with the hood, you see i bought this tank of a friend.

But my problem is, its very loose, and need to put it back on securely.

Ok maybe it's just me, but if you don't know what it is for.... are you sure you even need it?
And if it is for the hood, do you have it now and can test fit it to see what it does?
IDK but sometimes less is more, and if you can get by without it maybe you're better off?

it looks like it is there to stiffen the glass to help it from bowing out. i had a 55 gal that i broke the cross support bar that goes from front to back and it bowed out about half an inch (2cm) or so. it looks like these glass pieces would do the same as the cross support bar but with out blocking part of the top of the tank. if they are loose i would secure them not remove them completely.
