8 foot tank

How many gallons is an 8 foot tank usually? My friend is gonna sell me one.

Also it comes with everything. What should I pay? Or at least why do you think is reasonable?

There really is no answer because an 8' tank can come and many different sizes like this.

96”x(18-24&rdquox24” Rectangle 1/2” $1,840
96”x(18-24&rdquox30” Rectangle 3/4” $2,743
96”x(18-24&rdquox36” Rectangle 3/4” $3,110
96”x(18-24&rdquox48” Rectangle 1” $4,908
96”x30”x24” Rectangle
96”x30”x30” Rectangle 3/4” $3,089
96”x30”x36” Rectangle 3/4” $3,360
96”x30”x48” Rectangle 1” $5,225
96”x36”x24” Rectangle 3/4” $2,825
96”x36”x30” Rectangle 3/4” $3,325
96”x36”x36” Rectangle 1” $4,
96”x36”x48” Rectangle 1.25” $8,730
96”x36”x60” Rectangle 1.5” $15,750
96”x48”x24” Rectangle 3/4” $3,492
96”x48”x30” Rectangle 3/4” $3,802
96”x48”x36” Rectangle 1” $5,387
96”x48”x48” Rectangle 1.25” $9,985


So as you can see there are many different tank sizes. We really need to know how tall and wide to give you how many gallons it is. The prices for a new tank was listed on what I copied and pasted. Do you know what filters and heaters and so on and so on come with it?

I have a 8ft long x 6ft wide x 3ft tall tank


The prices you quoted above are well out

Your mate maybe giving you the tank but it will probably take 6 strong men to move it depending on how tall the tank is

The thickness of the glass changes depending on how tall the tank is most people never go above 24" deep as the price goes up a lot

It could be acrylic if it is it will be much lighter and easy to move but chances are it will be scratched
