PostSubject: Aquarium Sizes and Weights    Thu Jun 09, 2011 1:07 am

(just a little info I found on another site, could be useful to someone Very Happy)

Do you have a used aquarium that you don't have size information for? Or perhaps you want to know how much your tank will weigh once it's filled with water. This chart is just what you need. It provides size and weight information for many of the basic aquarium sizes.
Basic Aquarium Sizes (US Units of Weight & Measure)

Note: Weights are for glass aquariums, acrylic will weigh less

10 gallon "Leader" 20" x 10" x 12" 111 lbs
15 gallon 24" x 12" x 12" 170 lbs
15 gallon High 20" x 10" x 18" 170 lbs
