What is the formula for figuring tank size?

I was told the used tank I bought was 120 gallons but the guy at the lfs said he has never seen a 5 ft tank before?? Now I'm curious. Her are my demensions, 60L by 18W and 28 inches tall. How many gallons would that be?

Thanks

John

The long and middle height tank. You'll enjoy filling it up and finding compatible lighting.

The calculator is for internal dimensions. If you deduct the thickness of your tank it probably is 120 and not 130 gallons
