Sometimes a vendor (Aqueon) slip in a tempered side panels.

"Aqueon Glass Aquariums  Tempered vs. Non Tempered
Due to glass availability, Central Aquatics may temporarily substitute regular or non-tempered glass panels with tempered glass panels. Anytime a glass substitution is made, a sticker will be adhered to the aquarium bottom as a precaution to the end user."

Sticker or not I always use a polarizing filter to verify the panel to be drilled is not tempered.

Here's a quick test.  Not my video.
