Trim dimensions of 10 gallon stock tank

I'm making a thing for a friend, and I need to know the dimensions of the lip inside the trim of a standard 10 gallon tank. Having a real hard time finding this info - would appreciate any assistance!

Thanks!

Depends on who made the tank. My Tetra tanks are not exactly the size of my Aqueon tanks. They are a touch smaller.

Dilution is the solution for the pollution.
Quote me as saying I was misquoted.
Once you get rid of integrity the rest is a piece of cake.
Here's to our wives and sweethearts - may they never meet.
If you agreed with me we'd both be right.

Damn. I found the tank discarded on the street, don't recall the brand. Was hoping to avoid a trip to Brooklyn, but I guess I'll have to schlepp over and measure it. Thanks for the info!

Why not just talk see the trim off? I've derimmed 10's and 20 longs with no issues (unless you are talking about bottom trim).

It's not a bad idea. I derimmed a 10 once. The tank is already scaped though, so it would be a pain to do now. I just needed to know the trim dimensions so I could build a rig for the lights I'm giving her.
