My guess is it's a 46g bowfront tank. If you can get some dimensions of it we can confirm that.

I was going to say the exact same thing, 46g... Just looks too small to be a 72g, but bigger than the 20 something gallon. Those seem to be the 3 most popular sizes.

I have a 46 bow and the shoes on the bottom give me pause to say it is a 46 bow.
here is a link for the sizes

I think it may be a 36 bow

It is pretty easy to figure out. Just measure Length Width and Height, multiply them and then divide by 230.4
For example my tank is 72"x24"x24"= 41,472/230.4 = 180gallons

Calculating volume isn't that easy for a bowfront.
