Wellll i drilled my 200, half full. I had no option but to drill from the inside out.

This took place because im just over the DIY PVC i made. I had to battle the overflows suction and no matter what couldnt get it adjusted correctly
I took my time, went slow and made it through.

My concern now... is the dust from the grinded glass. Will that have a negative effect on any livestock inside the tank? Its cycling now, and wont have fish for a bit. In my mind i assumes grinded up glass was like sand... idk any insight on this, do i need to empty tank, clean it... rinse sand and rock or will it be fine.

Did you make a overflow from PVC pipe? I don't understand why you had to drill the tank.

I don't know what to say about the the "dust" ...I might be more concerned about what contaminates came from the hole saw and not the glass..

I think theirs only 2 options for now. Empty the tank and start over with new sand and rinsed rock or forget about it...

Yeah i couldnt adjust for the siphon caused by the overflow. It was hair off regardless of return pump adjustment.

I just filled it, water change and 10 micron sock
