Adorable little tank! :)
I am a DIY geek so i had some diamond tip drills at the house for drilling into glass, the key is to use the smallest one you have first and use LOADS of water for cooling or the glass will expand and brake.

You can get pretty cheap glass drill bits at most local hardware stores for around 10 bucks and for a project like this were u don't plan on drilling a ton in the near future, the cheap ones will do just fine.

I used this one (http://www.amazon.com/Tetra-Whisper-.../dp/B000HHQ712)

I did modify it a bit, added a sponge bottom to it so it would not suck up my fish seeing as i felt the suction from it was a little strong, and created a special mount for it to fit better inside the tank.

The Air tube goes through the lid (so does the electric cord for the heater) and i have not had any evaporation since install day.
