I would not try to drill tempered glass as its a huge risk but if you do here's a little info on it including drill speeds.

If my father could help engineer oil pipe lines we can get a tank drilled. Back to Craigslist.

No, I'd rather drink it. Anyway, picked up 2 emerald crabs and a double headed feather duster along with some more frozen food tonight. The emeralds were the size of my pom poms, never seen them so small. The dusters were amazing and white. They are a necessary purchase...totally not spontaneous...I'll post pics later but it was extremely healthy. It even opened up while acclimating.

The dt almost overflowed again today. I think the vibrations of the pump cause the ball valve to slowly open. Issue currently resolved...want drilled tank badly.
