It's pretty easy to DIY. Princess Auto has the bits for under $20 each and even drills for $30. I drilled 10+ holes in 1/2" glass with this setup. I bought a new cheapo electric drill rather than use my DeWalt cordless with a wobbly chuck. Worked like a charm. http://img.tapatalk.com/464b85f3-1993-a34e.jpg

Hole saws are pretty cheap at Home Hardware and there's lots of DIY videos on YouTube.

We cracked the first tank we drilled. Kevin at Red Coral here in Clagary drilled the next tank for us (for a very reasonable price).

Maybe check with the LFSs you frequent to see if one of them can do it for you?
