Be very carful if you want to drill the bottom pain of glass.
A lot of tanks that are 40 gallons or larger are made with a pc of tempered glass for the bottom pain. Not all, but most
Please double check that before you drill. You can not drill tempered glass, it will shatter on you no matter how carful you are.If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

great write up cliff.. i did glass for 10 years and drilled many diff things . of course we had a special drill i dont know if i'd even try with a hand drill lolThe only substitute for good manners is fast reflexes.
