No need to disinfect just a general airing out is fine, just enough to get fresh air in

That's kinda what I was thinking. I want to to a coast to coast bean animal in this tank so I guess gives me a reason to bring it into the garage to reseal and drill, and if the drilling breaks the tank guess that solves the delima of getting a new tank lol

Drilling tanks is simple, just take your time with it. Iíve drilled over 50 tanks and sumps. Havenít broke one. Make sure you use water so it has lubricant.
