Length X width X height = volume. Then you convert cubic inches to gallons.

My guess is a 90 gallon, by the dimensions.

Yup, 90 gallons.

You would have to convert the 4 feet to inches so that the units are all the same :) You're not the first person to ask how big their tank is, and you certainly won't be the last.

Yeah, 90 is a good size tank - the height really makes it look big.

No, not worthless - get a second 40 gallon heater and put one at both ends of the tank. It will make for a more uniform temp. Or return it and get a bigger heater.

Starting From Scratch Again. Need Advice

Hello, I got a tank last month and I really screwed up. The tank i got was a 90 gallon tank witch I thought was a 40 gallon. So I bought a filter that works up to 40 gallons, also a heater for a 40g tank. I also dont think i cycled the water properly. Then came the fish. 2 have recently died. My tetra just had 15 babies. And on top of that a couple of my fish have the ich. (im working to cure that now!). Trying to get these fish out of this hell hole. So Im deciding on buying a brand new tank. I know its gunna take awhile to set up! I havnt started yet. Im preplanning now. I need to know what to do with my fish and giving them away is not an option for me!! So fill free to help me out and give me advice on what to do and how to start this new adventure!
