    75 galon perfecto all tempered glass???

    Does anyone in here have a 75 g perfecto aquarium that theyve drilled?? Theres a sticker on the BOTTOM of the tank that sais "tempered glass". I would like to drill the back glass, not if its tempered though!

    I thaught I would email perfecto however it doesnt seem to be a valid adress that they have on the site...

    Thanks in advance for the input.:help:

    I have drilled 3 of these tanks, on the back pane or side pane. It has only been that tagged bottom pane that is tempered.

    agreed with OSD.

    Plus i emailed perfecto and my response was that they only do tempered bottoms unless its a custom tank

    Thanks very much OSD and fisherman.

    Thats exactly what I needed, someone who had done it!! Your the man OSD.
    Fisherman, I guess you were luckyer than I was at contacting these people! Thats the proof I needed!!

    Awesome, now I can drill the back, Itll be much better with overflow styles for the display and I can keep all the equipment in the sump. Ive never had that kind of set up, though I dont mind seeing the equipment, I think my lady will realy apreciate a cleaner looking display!!

    the way to know if all sides are tempered is on new tanks is that stickers will be placed on all panes of glass that are tempered..

    just for future reference..

    I think the only ones with anything besides the bottom tempered would be the starphire and low iron aquariums and even then likely only those sides will be tempered
