Yea I checked that out. My LFS only charges $30/ hole, and I'm only looking for 1 hole, so it might just be worth it to have them do it... Don't even think this is going to happen as I will basically have to start over with the tank.

ive done what your about to do..... you would more than likely have to completely empty the tank. while your drilling, little chips of glass can go into the tank and normally you have to have some water running over the hole while drilling and doubt you would want water going all over the place in your house while drilling. you could get away with doing it still but you just need to get yourself prepared for the water over the hole while drilling and the little chips of glass...... if you can work out a way to stop these 2 things going everywhere then you should be right
