The measurements are (roughly):
48¼" long : 20½" high : 18¼" deep
These are outside dimensions, and do include the trim, but they just seem wierd to me for a 55g. Of course having never owned anything but a 10g before this I don't have a clue!
Anybody clue me in on if it really is a 55g, or is it bigger than that?
Congratulations! Sounds like you're the proud owner of a 75E! A 55 gal
would be about 6 inches less in width (front to back).
Edit ... since other's have beat me to the punch
.. I'll add that I think a 75E is a GREAT tank size! Not too big to require an entire wall, but large enough to offer a great variety of stocking options!
