I have the same tank and drilled it a couple of weeks ago, no problem, but I drilled a side pane, not the bottom

That curved bit is definitely glass. Ok I know for a fact that it's glass but one way to tell I believe is on the photo to the right where it curves you can see how the curve distorts the view, acrylic doesn't do that.
