48x18x18 tank?

So was cruisin home on the way from work today, and saw a garage sale with this pretty good sized looking tank. It came with the stand, as well. Stopped by and we took some measurements, because the lady didnt know what size tank it was. I don't either frankly!

The dimensions are 48x18x18 or 19. Is it a 75? Because if it is... that's a really good deal

What sized tank was this? Would have loved to buy it if I had an extra hundred bucks.

Looks like a 75g. 90 would be taller.

Probably the 75g (48x18x19) as it is a much more common size than the 65 listed above. Good deal for $100 if it holds water (or even if the stand is nice, and you can use it, it's worth more than $100 alone).

Yeahh the stand was nice. It looked like one of those black cast iron stands or something like that?

Update.... thanks a lot for the help guys. When the lady took the measurements it must have been a little bit off because I picked it up today and took it home. I'm pretty sure it's a 75 gallon because the dimensions are 48x18x20.

Great deal. I'm super excited. Never had a tank this big before. The stand seems kind of wobbly, though...

Few pics of the stand... maybe that can help identify what kind of stand it is.





I think the floor is a little bit uneven there in the back, so that's probably making it more wobbly. I've never had a problem with that though as I had a another tank there previously with almost the same kind of stand.

Am i the only one that sees the bent piece of metal? (front left) Looks like its.. hammer time! *starts up that song*

Do you own a level (the tool)? If so check the floor then your stand.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.
