How many gallons is this tank?


Long story short my buddy had to move out of MN. He hooked me up with his rimless all glass tank. The dimensions are as follows: 32.25" x 14" x 16"

How many gallons is this?

31.4 gallons is the total volume. The formula is LxHxW divided by 230.

I got 31.27 with a different formula, but it is close enough. 31 being the operative number.

convert the inches to feet, multiply (LxWxH)*7.48 (water constant - gallons per cubic foot)
