Tank size help

Hello everyone. So today my friend gave me a tank and I have no idea what size it is. I was thinking maybe 15 or a little bigger. Im going to use to to house my baby Kribs in after they get a little bigger, then I might start another community I dont know yet. Any ideas of what I can do after the babies are gone?


PS: The tank will be cleaned and tested to make sure that there are no leaks.

Looks like a 20 long to me, if you could possibly get some dimensions that would help to determine.

It appears to be a terrarium, not an aquarium. I'm not sure that they are built to withstand being filled with water.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

usually turtle tanks don't require a whole lot of water. Unless you know your friend filled it completely/just had floating basking places/had it as such for quite sometime.
