I'm runnin outta room !!!

On Jan. 9th I was trollin on Craigslist In the pet section, (A bad habit I have) I found a 75 Gallon with EVERYTHING !! I'm talkin two filters, heaters, Decorations and a HUGE black hand made stand. I paid
$ 200.
On the 24th a friend brings over a huge aquarium, filters, and everything. He said he knew this girl that wanted it out of her garage, and she just wanted to give it away.

So now along with my 10 gallon Betta/ and his 10 neons buddies. My 29 gallon the I also found on Craigslist. That one was $ 150, with everything again. I think I'm gonna stay off Craigslist for awhile !!!

I do have a question, though, and thought someone could tell me how many gallons this new one is. I have not cleaned it out. have to rearange the livin room first.
I measured the 70 gallon the length is 48 inches across. and the width, 18 ins. This new one Is also measured 48 ins. across and only 13 in. width. So I am confused on the gallon size of this new one. Any Help on this, I would
appreciated !!
And......yep..... I now know I am turning into a fish hoarder

Yep, just google a volume calculator and enter the length, width and height. If you want more accurate volume, measure the height to where the water line would be, not the top of the tank :)

Age is only a state of mind.. It feels good to act your shoe size every now and then...
