That would scare the shite out of me....

Ben, is the tank glass???

Most aquarium bottoms are Tempered glass... This can NOT be grilled or cut...
Just something to think about..

I would be trying to find a glazier who could come to your house with the right tools. I wouldn`t want to risk it myself :dry:

I'm going to speak to some LFS owners and see if they know anyone who can do it.
