New Fish Tank - does this look big enough?

I want to buy this fish tank from a local on Craigslist, and I was wondering if it would be enough swimming space for my three danio (which are doing great!).

What size is it? Did you ask the seller? If I had to guess, I'd say maybe 20 or 29 gal, using the garage as a frame of reference, but it's hard to tell. Weird listing.

If that's the case, though, I think it would be fine for three danios. I read online that they're fine in 10 gallons, but I think they would be happier in at least 20... they're such active little guys!

Thank you! I know - there wasn't a large reference point, but I can take the measurements of my dresser to make sure it will fit on top if it. If not, I'll take that and the stand, and move my armoire :D Thanks again.

Looks like a 20g to me too. I'd check I donno if its the picture/ sometime reflecting or if there's a hole drilled on the right side; don't mess with drilled tanks rather try find something else then. Do you have lights & filter for a tank that size?

It irritates the heck out of me when people post fish tanks on craigslist and don't give any reference as to how many gallons it is or what the dimensions are.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty
