It sort of depends on the tank, however a standard 75 gallon is 48 1/2 x 18 1/2 x 21 3/8 (L x W x H). Here's a site that lists standard aquarium measurements:

Hey thanks, yea I knew the outside measurements. But I figured the inside would be different, and I was just wondering if anyone knew right off hand. But thanks man!

Again, it depends on your tank- if it's glass, tampered glass, etc. Just subtract the thickness of your glass from the overall area though and you'll be good!

Tanks are not made of tempered glass. Be careful putting styrofoam in your tanks as some styrofoam products contain formaldehyde. Not good for fish unless you wish to preserve them.
