You will need a dremel, because of the Higher RPMs that is produces.

Now, don't take this as a fact, I have not done it....BUT...seeing that you are grinding the glass and not cutting it, I would imagine that a high speed drill would work as well. It would probably just be cumbersome and take longer. For example, when you use a diamond bit hole-saw to cut the glass, you use a normal drill on a slow and steady setting. The Dremel bit (#7134) is a diamond bit too.

A few simple pics are available, if you want them PM me.

it would be hard to have full control of a normal drill, the dremel is very easy to hold

Well heres the latest. I have decided after much debate to take the 2 tanks I was going to use (and drill one of them) back to the LFS and go with a 48" long tank as my sump/fuge combined under my sump. Should be a lot better and easier. I think this will eliminate a lot of headaches and time too.
Thanks for all the help!! Sorry no one got to see a trainwreck!! And thats what this would have been!!
