pre-drilled or not pre-drilled that is my question

i finally have enough for my tank .

my question is: what are the pros/cons of getting a pre-drilled aquarium over a normal aquarium?

I'm looking at the 110 gal, or maybe the 120 gal. it must be 48"

thanks

mark

I'd go with the 120 over the 110, it has a much better foot print than the 110 and is much easier to light.

Drilled tank
Pros:
All plumbing contained in the tank
Requires less to hang off the back
Typically quieter than a tank with a HOB overflow
Tank can be placed closer to the wall
Less chance of the tank overflowing due to overflow problems

Cons:
Cost more
