    I calculated the volume of the dimensions rounded to four digits.
    Conversion factor used was 1 gallon = 231 cubic inches.
    All volume is in gallons and dimensions length x width x height in inches.

    Nominal Size ## Dimensions ## Volume
    10 ######## 20x10x12 #### 10.39
    20 ######## 24x12x16 #### 19.95
    20 Long ##### 30x12x12 ### 18.70
    29 ######## 30x12x18 #### 28.05
    30 ######## 36x12x16 #### 29.92
    40 Breeder ### 36x18x16 #### 44.88
    50 ######## 36x18x19 #### 53.30
    55 ######## 48x12.5x21 ### 54.55
    75 ######## 48x18x21 #### 78.55
    90 ######## 48x18x24 #### 89.77
    125 ####### 72x18x21 #### 117.8
    150 ####### 72x18x28 #### 157.1
    180 ####### 72x24x24 #### 179.5
    220 ####### 72x24x26 #### 194.5

    The internal volume will be smaller depending on the thickness of the walls.
    I'm surprised the 220 gal is so far short. Maybe the dimensions given were wrong?

    For volume? its l x w x height = your increment squared. So square feet or centimeters. At least thats how i remember it, its been about 5-6 years since school lol
    IF you want it in liquid measurements, just use the calculator over there <----- but you can find out how many gallons go into 1 square foot and do it that way.

    Nice. It might also be helpful to multiply the volume by 8.345404 to get the minimum weight of the tanks filled with water (in pounds)

    I agree though, a sticky here would be REALLY nice
