The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go
Love the way it even gives the heating size reqirements
neat but inaccurate
it doesn't ask for the thickness of the tank walls
any time your calculating volume you should enter the inside measurement

i realize that it's not entirely accurate, but it's great to have some sort of estimate to go off of.

I have to double check my measurements, I know my 36gal is not 42gal.
