View Full Version : Super quick question about drilling an AGA tank

11/01/2007, 06:25 PM
earlier today i helped my friend drill his 20g long AGA tank with the drill bit i bought off ebay

he drilled his hole on the side of the tank instead of the back, just wonder if all sides were glass? is there a side thats tempered like the bottom?

All sides are good.

since the glass panes on the front back are longer, does that mean its easier for it to break than the sides? i wana try the same thing, but i wanna do the hole on the back instead

bump---or will it be just as easy as drilling the sides?

The back should be fine to drill, there is equal pressure on all sides. They temper the bottom because it takes a lot of pressure and it is likely to have something dropped on it.
