    well you need to find out because if it is then say bye bye to your nice cube if you attempt to drill it. Google how to tell if glass is tempered or not, if its not tempered then im sure someone here should have some diamond bits you could borrow or help you with. Unfortunately I dont have any.

    where do you want to drill it? bottom or back? the bottom is definitely tempered, and there are quite a bit of 55 gallons that have tempered sides as well. find out first and if it is good, its not tough to drill, you just need some patients. I have a diamond bit that will cut a hole to accommodate a 1" bulkhead and I just drilled sandmans tank for 1.5". he has that drill bit, he may loan it to you.

    Yeah we did a tank drilling session at a meeting a few months back and he went to take his turn and he broke the tank. It was a cheap little tank though.
