Well crap...

The girl i bought my tank from said it was 45 gallon and i just used a converter with the measurments and it says its like 37.4... That sucks... Could the calculator be wrong? Is there something im missing?

By the way the Measurments are 36"L 15"W and 16"T

No worries...That is not too much of a difference. You can always add a sump or fuge to add water volume.

Wouldn't be too worried. Going by tank gallons is worthless IMHO. Measure the inside diameter of an empty tank to get true volume. Now if we take into account liverock, sand etc. that displaces water volume your actual gallons shrinks even more. I think my 75 gallon tank actually took around 57 gallons of water to fill.
