    HI ALL

    I have a question about glass, I am in the process of building a new tank, and have the option of hardening the glass after the holes have been drilled (10mm glass)
    is this a good idea or will it lead to problems??

    thanks

    there should be no need to "harden" it, do u mean laminate?

    also what size tank you looking at?

    Hi Regis,

    Personally I dont think that it would be necesary to harden the glass after being drilled. If you wanna harden it then cool, but dont think it would make any difference now or in the future!

    the best way to "harden" around the holes is like this, use a square piece of glass siliconed around the bulkhead and hole.
