I am building my own acrylic tank with the dementions or 48 by 24 by 24 inches. My question is does anyone know how many gallons that is. Your help would really be helpful thanks. Very Happy

simple tank volume thingy. times the length width and height together. then divide by 231. and thats your tanks volume in gallons so thats:

48x24x24= 27648
27648/231= 119.688311

about 120 gallons of water.

cheers

andrew

One gallon = 231 cubic inches. That's where it comes from.
