    Hey Guys,

    I'm looking for a company that can supply 4mm glass HOWEVER i need 2 holes drilled. 20mm and 34mm diameter respectively.

    I have contacted 3 suppliers but they can only drill in sizes not mentioned above.

    Does anybody know a company that can do this for me? Its for a refugium.

    Thanks.

    i would rather go 6mm, 4mm is to thin to hold water, i have learnt from experience...

    you can get 20mm hold, which is actually 21.5mm so that 20mm plumbing can be used, and 32mm drill which drills around 33mm, i have both if you need
