If that is a ten underneath it then it looks like a 29 to me.

If you get the measurements, here is a sight to put them in to calculate the size.... Aquarium System Volume Calculator

Post the results. Will be curious to see if I was right

L x W x H = cubic inches/231 = gallons. No need for online calculators.

I wonder is that tank rolled down the hill and into the water after they took the picture rofl. Who the heck would take it there.. to take a pic of a tank. If that was a public park.. they must have looked like complete weirdos. Anyways that looks like a 55G to me.. The sides are pretty skinny like mine, and it looks like its 4ft. But yeah, definitely need measurements to tell what it is.


Haha i was right. Its exactly the same as mine. Thats a 55 gallon tank your looking at.
