    I'll find out by glass blowing industries tomorrow, I think they in Randburg... I have dealt with them before regarding glass panels so maybe they drill as well... I'll let you know tomorrow what the lady says.

    Have Emailed them and they can only do it at the factory, which means I would have to order a whole new piece of glass :(

    Thank you

    Most places have an drill pre mounted so wont drill the tank thats built. Your best bet is to find an petshop willing to take an risk an drill for you. Most shops will only have an 50mm saw. Or you could diy it bit drill bits 50 mm and up is expensive. I have an 40mm if you want to borrow? But your bulkhead will have to be an 38mm.

    The tank is in pieces at the moment so that should make it easier. the glass drills are too expensive for me to buy for only a single use.

    I don't have a 38mm bulkhead unfortunately, I've got 50mm and 25mm pipe size
