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? :evil:

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.

i let the tank go to someone else, tho it looked ok, id want to replace the filters etc, just to make sure it was all a ok. so my bf made me change my mind and im gonna save to get a brand new tank, tho it could take a while :( .. but.. there r some new ones on ebay for like £50 with stand etc etc so ill keep my eyes peeled!

while im here i may aswell ask, wat size tank u think is ok for , 4 guppies, 4 balloon mollies and 2 swords? i know they will breed but id like to get my livebearers into 1 tank and make some room for others in my existing tank, tho i love my livebearers id like others too, but as i live in a first floor flat i dont wanna push it and have the floor go through!! hahahaha, dont think my neighour would like that very much! (ill either raise the fry in other tank or use them as feeders)
