Welcome to the forum. If you go to http://www.aqadvisor.com and put in the dimensions of your tank up the top and press the "update" button, it'll give you the volume of your tank.

What does it measure? It's hard to get an idea from a photo. My 165-litre (about 43.5 US gallons) measures approx 38cm x 82cm at the edges (it's got a bow-front too, but I haven't taken that into account) and about 45cm deep. If yours is a bit less than that, then 35 gallons sounds about right....

I would guess it is a 36 gallon bowfront tank. You might want to read up on goldfish though. They have different temperature requirements than most tropical fish.
