Or is that 1.5 mis-drilled holes per beer? 🍺 🤣

ohhh. DRILL holes? 

I was just going to make holes with a small hammer. 

 I have a 1" hammer, a 1.5" hammer and a 3" hammer.  As long as you keep the glass cool while hitting with the hammer we should be ok.   Hopefully its tempered glass, that makes the process go MUCH quicker.

I think the hole sizes are about 2 1/4 and 1 1/4

2 large and 2 small, i should just buy new bulkheads.

 

You guys are all great! Thanks for the responses.

It's being tied into my 135g system that is pretty high flow. This cube is going to be home to my clowns and all their nems and was trying to plan on the returns for flow so i don't have to risk a powerhead in there.

I think your idea with using all 1'' is a better plan. More room in that tiny box as well.
