Try using masking tape on the acrylic. Mark your intended holes on the tape and drill it just enough to get it started, like a pilot hole, then finish your holes in reverse.My juvenile G. pulchripes is in need of a rehouse, so I picked up this 5x6x8 display case from Hobby Lobby.

A lot of keepers use these. But the lid is hard to open. REALLY hard to open. And the plastic feels extremely brittle. If I tried to drill a hole in it, it would probably just shatter. What gives?
Always works for me when drilling through thin acrylic. Also, play with your drills clutch and speed controls if you have a quality drill
