Default new project

This is my new tank I got for a ridiculous price, nearly gave the guy more than the asking price!

Anyway, can someone tell me how many gallons it is? It is 800 high and 600 wide.

I've got alot of research to do regarding drilling, plumbing, sump etc. to do so not rushing anything. Might make it a paludarium.

Any suggestions would be great

Calculating the volume is a little complicated, so stay with me. First, measure one side's length. Using inches will make this easier, because the volume of the water at the end of this explanation is in cubic feet- I assume you meant 600 x 800 cm. Then, using this formula: The fraction 3 on the square root of 3 over 2 quantity raised to the s squared power, with s of course being the side, you can determine the SA of the base. Then, just multiply the base's SA by the height of the tank, 800, and divide the volume of the tank by the volume of a gallon of water, about 0.13 cubic feet. Does that make sense? Probably not, I got carried away.
