Yea, I'm only 14, but at home depot I saw dome acrylic that I will have them cut for bubble traps, can I take my aquariums there and have them drill it? My father and I are DIY's but out of his hundreds of tools he doesn't have things to drill holes in glass without breaking it or a table saw for cutting glass, so I'm guessing home depot is the place for me.

You could ask, but they may or may not do it. Also, I'd have to second the Octopus skimmer suggestion. I've heard so many great things about them.

Also, for drilling, all you need is a drill, and one of those drill bits. Those diamond tipped ones are what you should use I guess. I've heard take it real slow, and use water to keep it cool. Although I haven't done it myself...

I'd also check out ebay, craigslist, amazon, etc. I've seen some good deals around.

That model was the one I was thinking of getting for my tanks. I've heard good things about it.

I really couldn't tell you. It depends on the dimensions of the tank, and your height you can work with.
