Tank upgrade

I really want a bigger tank, I saw this on Gumtree (UK equivalent to Craig's list) and the current owner doesn't know the capacity of it, does anyone have any idea?:/ sorry I know it's probably hard to tell. Comes with Pump, Heater, filter and lots of accessories. In the description it says it's a very big tank and a lot of money has been spent on it but it's too big and he wants to downsize. The fish come with the tank and honestly I wouldn't want to keep these fish:/ what would I do with them? Any help grateful thanks!

Fish in the tank-
Large silver shark, kissing gourami, silver fish with bright red eyes(forgot species), small pleco and large catfish.

it looks like a 65gal based on the picture since i have a 65 at home. i could be wrong since part of the tank is cut out. as for the fish, i would sell them to a lfs and exchange them for merchandise/fish/plant/or anything you need to redo your new tank. check the store policies as they vary from store to store
