Just a piece of anecdotal evidence: a few days ago I measured a 4'X2'X2'
All-Glass aquarium stated to have 120 gal capacity. External dimensions
gave 131 gal. Internal dimensions, allowing for a 1/2" free space between
water surface and frame top, gave 120 gal. So at least in this case the
manufacturer's figure is rigth.

Hey all! I had just recently subscribed to this list and missed the original
question with this posting. I am getting the above described tank
Was just wondering what the 1st post was asking..
Oh and to everyone... Hello ! Just wanted to greet everyone, hehe.
My name is Melissa and Ive been keeping FW fish for 10 years now. Started
when I was 11. Ummmmm , I have a 45 gallon and a 20 gallon. Gettting the
120 tomorrow. I have a community setup of tetras/barbs/rasboras/pimelodus
cats/rainbow cichlids/gouramis, ect taht will be going into the 120. In the
20 gallon is a 9" Red devil female that was in that 20 gallon temporarily and
tomorrow it will get the 45 all to it's lonesome ... But until I can find a
bottom feeder it wont mind. I am going to be keeping plants in the 120 ... I
had gotten some plants when I was younger, but because I didint do proper
research on them, they of course wilted away ... But this time I want to
really do it right!!
Well, thanks for hearing me out !
Hope to get into soem interesting fish convos with all of you in the near
