How many gallons.

Ok so I have a tank that I think is a 25 gal I have had a few people come over and tell me that is a 20 or a 30 gal so I was wondering if you guys could help me out. It's 2 feet long by a foot long. So 24 inches long and 12 inches wide.

The exact measurements are 12 inches long by 12 1/4 inches wide and 22 1/4 inches tall. And the closest thing on that list is a 30 gallon. Do you think that's what my tank is.

i think it is a 25 gallon. different brand tanks have different amounts of trim on them, that alter the actual dimensions of the tank.

Just take the internal dimensions (I.D.) and do the math. The numbers he provided works out to 28.955, so 29ish.

I like this site for converting volume measurements..
Volume calculator - Math Central

With the dimensions you gave, 'goldfish loach boy' is correct at 14.2g
If you wanted to add the glass thickness of 0.4mm (0.157inch), which is the average glass thickness for that size tank, it will equal 13.4g.

Here is a link to a volume calculator for tanks. I used it to figure out what size mine was. Aquarium Volume Calculator
