largest tank for the table

I bought a table from petsmart about 7 years ago. The measurements are 28" L x 16 x W, how do I compute the largest tank that it will hold?

I currently have a tank that is 20 gal and measures 24 " L x 12 " w x 16 " H and I want to upgrade to the biggest tank the table will hold.

I looked on line and there doesn't seem to be any tanks available with the measurements of the table.

Thank you.

Linda

its not the size that is the primary worry what kind of weight would it take

for example 20 gal is approx 75 KG in just water

H24"xW12"xH21" you could go find one like this BUT this would weigh 99KG
it would hold =26 US Gallons = 99 liters = 99KG in just water
this is presuming your table measures a tiny bit over 12" as most are marginally over 12"

hope this helps =D
