Question 70 gallon?

My uncle called my mom 15min ago and asked her about how big a 70 gallon fish tank is and I overheard and couldnt but to ask why. It turns out that his friend is giving him the tank for free!!!! This really made want the tank badly. He says he's going to set it up,but i doubt it because he's NEVER had a tank before and i think its too big for him. I have a empty 35 gallon and am more than happy to trade, but Ill have to ask him first. I also want to know how common the size is and the measurements. I can't get the tank out of my mind right now, I want it sooooooo BAD!!!!!

My 70g is 48 inches long, 20 inches high, and 18 inches width front to back. I believe this is the standard for a 70 US gallon tank.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
