I think you'd need to space them as far apart and from the edges as you can, then when the bulkheads are installed it should help some with strength... Thin glass is more difficult not to chip but certainly not impossible. I had an old 10 gallon I practiced on first and never broke or cracked it. Practiced both with a rotary tool and the hole saws I use now with few problems.

BTW - 1" bulkheads take a 1 3/4" or 45mm hole.
