I'd say not, a circle hole drill bit is good to use the rougher the better

I'll have a look around the garage, I'm sure I can find something that will do it, cheers for pointing that out to me!

There was a delay but I have my new untempered 55g. Made by Deep Blue, it's got a nicer plastic rim than the aqueons with a slimmer yet more sturdy center brace, so less shadow casting. Also came with black silicone which I think looks better than clear, other than that it's a stars add 55g, dropping it off at the glass shop tomorrow, will post when I get it back.
