I wanna pick this up($10) at my local CL, the owner has no idea how many gallons.

Any idea what brand and how many gallons?

Figuring out how many gallons it holds is pretty simple. Bring a tape measure and measure in inches. Multiple length x width x height and then divide by 231.

Very interesting looking tank....almost seems the lid is not removable?

I agree it looks like the fluval edge with the cover for the hob, stock light, back portion, and its stand taken off. For $10 is it passes a leak test (make seller fill tank completely, wipe it down with a towel and wait at least 5 minutes then check for leaks with a paper towel) its a great deal!
Googled the name and found this:

I believe that is the 6g model. The 12g fluval edge is more tall than long.
New and "discounted" price at LFS stores that tank is still $60-100

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.

I wouldn't buy it! Imagine trying to thoroughly clean it inside, with only that small opening to reach into. Then imagine having to keep doing that every month.
