To calculate the volume of your tank, enter in the following dimensions:

Length: inches
Width: inches
Height: inches



A tank with dimensions 31 x 12 x 19 would have a volume of 30.60 gallons. It will weigh about 262.22 pounds when filled with water alone.

Why is it that I can never find bargains like that near me on eBay?

Are you going to buy it lioness?

I agree, I never find those deals and when I think I find a deal it is a piece of junk.

Make sure to check it out and hopefully it will be full of water so you can see for sure it doesn't have a hidden problem.

(ill either raise the fry in other tank or use them as feeders)
