    You could buy a bulkhead that fits the drilled hole...then screw the proper sized thread plug into it. A few bucks, but it'll work (and you'll probably be using the bulkhead later anyways).
    Keep passing the open windows!

    bulkhead is ~15-20$ maybe less... and end caps.. well.. possibly 2-3 $.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    Try any of the plastics places in town (Canus, PVC plus), some people have mentioned finding them in the pool supplies section at Canadian Tire...price is going to depend on the diameter of the hole. Measure it and then call them for a price...if it's a standard size I think they were around twenty-something...the plug is cheap.

    Cool

    AC has the proper bulkheads. most other plastic places carry the heavy duty ones [you don't want] but ask Ivan as he gets them always. You can go to HOMEDEPOT and buy a cap in the ABS Plumbing department for $2. pickup some good teflon tape as well.I did that for my 500g as it is full right now with bulkheads capped. I'll just add the plumbing to the outside of the bulkhead and when I'm ready I just remove the cap. To easy Mark. I'm going to HOMEDEPOT on 10th line at 4pm. you can meet me there. measure the hole and pm Ivan.
