Great job with this calc, I will be using it again, do you know of one that allows you to approximate displacement for substrate, rock, bogwood etc.? I am guessing that a 200l tank would go about 165-180 on actual water capacity, what do you think?

This one tells you displacement of sand substrate, volume and cubic vol. with sand, amount of sand for desired depth, cost of sand, weight of water, how many fish, etc for fresh and saltwater. Very in-depth.

That is an awsome claculator. That alone answered many of my questions. I can't trust the LPS.
