    I bought 40 gal breeder from Petco on sale. It is Tetra brand. I can't get sure answer from Employees. Sticker is only on the bottom that says tempered. Talking to other Reefers it seams that only bottom is tempered. Do you guys know more about it. I will drill tank on Tuesday. I guess I will find out...

    I know about bottom. I want to drill back. I think that should be fine, right?

    I drilled it tonight. But I think I might screw up. I don't know what I was thinking. I might ask about this in different section. I drilled 3- 1 3/4 holes for 1" bulkheads but distance between them is 1 1/2" edge to edge of the hol . Im not sure if that's good enough to keep strength of the glass… Maybe somebody can answer that, please. Is my project done before I even started? ;(

    I opened new thread about it. Look closely. I will be very happy if my build will help somebody.
