As far as gallonage is concerned, it's debated. They are often referred to as 3 gallon longs, but not really 3 gallons. Anyone know exact gallonage?

3.2 gallons if it is 18x6x7

2.8 if it is 18x6x6

Well then I guess it is a 3 gallon long! Yay! I like referring to it as such for whatever reason. Awesome.

I really think we should have a tag line. But yeah for the longest time I thought it was 2.3 gallons. I never actually did the volume formula on it before a few months ago.

18x6x6/231=G

I wish an LFS near me carried these, I'd already have multiples.... Maybe it's best they don't

I'll start this off with a picture of my own:

And I'll end it with the list I'll keep as recent as possible.

Our first member introduced many of us to these tanks. Kudos to Somewhatshocked

There's a link, but $60 is extremely overpriced IMO
