Talking Glass tank drilling in ABQ?

Whats up Duke city people, I bought a 135g tank (72"x18"x23") and I want to drill a couple of holes on it to drain to a sump. Is therw a LFS that will drill holes on my tank?
I have a 500gph external Iwaki pump and plan on doing 1" drain and 3/4" for the return?

I will build a diy with 1/8" acrylic an overflow box 8" long by 2" width and 4" high, with it connecting to the outside of the tank and a bean animal or herbie style return.

I have some doubts on the build, I will gladly accept suggestions, this is going to be a planted tank.
Thank you God bless.
