I'm wrong, just asked glass guy, it gets drilled before they temper it!

The 75 g tank that is mine to buy is already drilled. The hole is there with bulk head fittings already attached. I don't need to drill anything bc its already there??

That 75 gal tank is an absolute steal. I would've hopped on that as quick as possible. If u go much bigger then a 75 you will need to use a sump and stuff anyway and it's better for the fish to have a sump.

So this is better buying the 75 gallon setup instead of the petco $40 - 40g breeder? I was supposed to see it today and he couldn't meet me. Is the brand Deep Blue the best glass tank to buy like he says it is?
I don't like that the stand is black but I'm hoping I can paint it to look good. Only problem it's between 0-30 degrees mid winter so not sure where I'd paint it. I need a room above 55 or 60 degrees to dry right.

I think it's much better. The 40 gallon will end up costing way more and it's smaller. And a lower quality tank

I ended up buying a new 75g top fin tank and top fin stand for $315. I had already ordered the emperor 400 and eheim jšger 250 watt. I got it 2 days ago and I'm already considering getting the larger 90 or 110 g since it has same footprint and won't cost but $200 more for the 110g setup. I'm also toying with a 150g tank that's 48x 24 x 30 with stand,lid & lights for $630. Considering I plan on buying a $200 canister for the 75 g tank I bought anyway I will have enough filtration for the bigger tank. Maybe I will figure this out soon enough

Tanks tops

I have my own tops made. The hardware store will cut glass to your specs. I usually have them cut three pieces, one center support and two sides which lap over the center support. Then I nip the back corners off to allow air lines to pass through. I sand the edges with 220 sandpaper till they are no longer sharp and will not cut you. If you need fancier cut to be made look for a stained glass store in your area they will probably do it
I like all glass tops it only takes a few minutes to clean when I do water changes and gives max light

I agree. Haedware stores, even the big box ones will cut the glass free. I use a glass store near my house and they cut my tops for $5.00 out the door.
