drilling tank

I want to drill my tank to be RR. Problem is it is full. Is it ok to put all my lr and livestock in a rubbermaid tub and then drill my tank. Drilling it full is not an option as I have to drill the back and it is against the wall. And also what would I use to drill 1/4" glass or should I get it done at a glass shop. TIA

Glass shop unless you have a diamond hole saw bit. They sell them online... Make sure glass is not tempered
Keeping lr in tub is fine. Fish will need heater and some type of filtration, if you get a tub big enough for fish and LR that would be better for the fish.

I would get this done at a glass shop to be honest with you. You really need to use a drill press and the proper drill bit.

Most glass shops will only charge you ~$15 or so to do this work.

Thanks guys. I am more concerned with my livestock than I am with the drilling.
