    Good morning,

    I am building a refugium out of a 10 gal. for my 54 gallon and I need to drill a hole in the tank for my return.. I was wondering if anyone out there has a 44mm, 45mm, or 1 3/4" diamond bit I could use or rent to put this hole in my tank?

    Or if you know the least expensive place to purchase one for this use?

    I appreciate any help, thank you.

    I have a bit that measures 1 7/8 which i believe is for doing 1 3/4 inch holes it is a diamond encrusted bit that I bought years ago to drill a 1/2 thick 150 worked well. Make sure to keep it or any drill wet when drilling. You are more than welcome to use it any time.
