CCXGT is right, 70 gallons... (32"/12)*(28"/12)*(18"/12)= 9.333 cubic feet and there's 7.5 gallons per cubic foot, so 9.333*7.5= 70 gallons

I am thankful for those who calculate well!

So I haven't really bought large tanks before and I am guessing this really is a good deal. I will try to pick it up. When it is listed as a 55G, not as much interest as if it was listed as 70G.

Well, the bigger the tank the easier it is to keep. No point in messing about with tiny 7G tanks.

I still don't get how it's 70 gallons, 32*28*18=16128. 16128/217=74.3225.....

Idk. Looked up the formula somewhere when I was thinking about getting a custom built aquarium.
