I "aquired" a flat back hexigon tank (I'll be posting about how I aquired it in the Aqua Lounge Laughing ) and I'm not entirely certain how to tell how much water it holds. Here are the measurements:


Height = 16 inches
W (width at the widest point) = 12 inches
L (length at the back of the tank) = 36 inches
A = 22 inches
B = 8 inches
C = 8 inches

Can anyone help me figure out how many gallons my tank holds?

Nominally 28 gallons so realistically about 24 gallons.

Your tank (if a rectangle) is 6912 cu inches.
The volume of the 'would be' corners is 784.
So, your tank is 6128 cu inches.
6128 / 231 = ~26.5 gallons
