i have been under the assumption that the gallon rating of out tanks were just names. could you imagine what kind of confusion would be created if they actually named the tanks for their true volumes?

here's one of mine:

50g acrylic w/built-in wet/dry (36x15x20)

actual out side volume: 46.75g

actual amount of water in the tank: it's hard to say, lol. 15g looks like a 50% water change in the viewing portion and there's probably about 5g in the filtration portion left so i'm gonna have to assume that i've only got about 35g(probably a little more) of actual water in there.
