Cutting glass on terrarium

Does anyone have great tips on how to make a three sided cut on a glass terrarium. The cut will go down either side from the top of a rimless tank down 6" and then accros 6" to make an opening. This is going to be a turtle basking area attached to the top of another aquarium.

Some notes.
Terrarium is a one piece curved 3 sided piece of glass, rimless, it is not tempered.
Own a Dremel, have a diamond point carving tool for cuts.

Picture with green panters tape is the area i want to cut out. Thanks in advance for any tips/tricks on how to do this since i cant simply score, snap of a piece.Click image for larger version
