i have one( don't want to stand and cut glass the whole week, and the chances of me cracking the glass is very good), but i think a a drill will do it quicker

You get different sizes of the drill bits. Its so easy to drill it yourself but first practice 2-3 times on a plane peace of glass.

i have spoken to a couple guyz and they have said that should the tank be made up already then the chances of drilling with out cracking it is very slim and they dont wanna take that chance, looks like i have to go with the overflow box then:(

Hi OCELLARIS,

Me again ;)
Someone came around and drilled 3 tanks for me, and everything went well. So, if it's done correctly, the chances of breaking it isn't very large.

You'll also get lots more additional help on this forum for your endeavour. :)

apparently there is only one company that drill in duban.they are situated in pinetown.i think that it's the same place where most of the glass shops buy their glass from(supplier). i personally prefer a over flow box:)

when the power is out and then back on with regards to the
syphioning, i do have off cuts of glass left around if it can be made from it,
can you probably help me build it up with detailed description please
as im afraid to have the tank drilled and to have it crack again
i have a 600mm x 300mm x 300mm display tank
