Exclamation Fish tank official size

Was wondering if anyone who had a regular 45 gallon fish tank. Could pull out a tape measure and give me exact measurements to the 1/16th an inch. Putting it in to a wall and not doing traditional trim work either. Much appreciated.

all I can do is refer you to: - Glass Aquariums

48x12&1/2x17 (long)
36x12&1/2x25 (tall)

but you probably need more accurate measurements.

how about contacting your manufacturer to be sure?


my .02

maintain Fw and marine system with a strong emphasis on balanced, stabilized system that as much as possible are self substaning.

have maintained FW systems for up to 9 years with descendants from original fish and marine aquariums for up to 8 years.

With no water changes, untreated tap water, inexpensive lighting by first starting the tank with live plants (FW) or macro algae( marine)

Can you go to the store and measure one, specifically the one you are going to get.

I started to post earlier that you really should measure what you are going to use yourself. Then i figured maybe tou would get what you wanted.... i guess not. It sounds like your project would be seriously affected if you are going for accuracy, be a shame to have to redo something once you have your tank and it is different than you were led to believe. The plastic trim may be different on different tanks.

You can search for tank dimensions in google and find a list of standards easy enough, I did it before buying, but I would still not use that for a measurement for a renovation.
