how hard is it to patch up with glass holes that have been drilled for bullheads... i have a custom bulk tank that has 5 drilled holes in it. i want to patch them up, or just 3 of them so I can have just one drain and two returns. do i need to put the glass on the inside or the outside?

Silicone the glass on the inside that's how I would approach it, that way the water pressure is pushing on the entire glass and not on extra pieces that are on the outside of the glass that could potentially pop off under enough pressure.

Bad advice lol! Wassup dude. I said bad advice since silicone does not bond well with acrylic. Glass is silica and caulk is silicone.
