Tank Sizes???

I acquired 2 tanks today for 50 dollars. Both are sitting on the back porch holding water. 48x21x12 and the other is 36x24x12.
Can someone tell how many gallons they each would be.

I'm sure the first is a standard 55. Second is 50 I believe.

First is a 55.. other is a 45ish. If it's 36x12x24, it might be a 50 column? Never seen one 36x24x12

It's also a great deal! Make sure both are able to hold water! And cycle properly!

I'm just making sure they hold water for now, couldn't believe they were so cheap. I thought for sure something was wrong with them other than a few minor scratches.

Agreed. Here's a handy link, Tank Capacity Calculators. I can never remember so it's in my favorites.
