    Hello Fellow Reefer,

    I have a TL-550, the Rear glass is Cracked & i want to replace it. I am in the Process of Modifying my tank to include an External sump, so i want to drill some Holes in the rear glass :whistling: add a "Herbie Style drain", can i replace it with Perspex/ Acrylic or should i just use glass? The reason for the Perspex/Acrylic is so that i can have an overflow comb incorporated into the Rear section, want to maximize my Real estate in the Nano...:thumbup:, if i am going to go with the Perspex/Acrylic option what thickness is recommended?
