Razorworm Call Aqueon. The sides are not tempered, only the bottoms. the bottom of the 40b however, is not tempered, bigger ones have tempered bottoms.

Drilling 10G tanks

I have heard of varying degrees of success with drilling 10G tanks due to the thinness of the glass. I've drilled 20,40,55,and 75G tanks with no problem. Any input would be appreciated.
