My FREE stuff!!! What size tank is this?

My good buddy Nate just gave me these 2 tanks, awesome stand, hoods, lights, rocks, an air pump and a really long siphon that hooks up to a spigot.

Also, how many gallons do you guys think the big one is? The smaller one is a 10g. Thanks!

Looks like 75 assuming those floor tiles are about 12" each. Nice tank.

If you measure the length x width x height in inches then divide by 231 that will tell you how many gallons it is.....either way, sweet deal !

That big one really looks like a 75 gal to me. Are you sure you measured right? It really does look 18" front to back.

If all else just ask you friend he should know what size it is.

BTW, that's a very good friend indeed !!! Wish I was that lucky.

I'm usually pretty good at spotting the difference between a 75 gal & 55 gal tank (or 18" vs 12"deep) having seen so many pics on Craigslist. This one really fooled me though .. it happens. lol The side shot does show it's only about 12" deep.

A great gift for sure .... even more so with all the other stuff you got with it.
