Drilling Exo terra tanks

After a bit of research i decided to drill my new exo terra tank. The company says its all plate glass but some say the doors are tempored. I successfully drilled the back in prep for a small sump as it wall have a water feature as well as small fish and a green basilisk lizard.

Just thought ide share incase anyone wants to do the same. The 36x18x18 is what i have.

Also i had an older aqua culture tank from walmart. Drilled the side glass with no problem but the front and rear panels are tempered as it shaddered into a thousand pieces. Not sure if newer ones are the same this was from 2011.
