Re: NFC: Aquariums

Got that part...do you take the measurement from the inside of the tank or
the outside?  My tank is 22.5 cubic feet by outside dimensions and only 19.5
cubic feet on the inside.  Basically I'm asking if there's a standard...is
tank volume determined by how much water it can hold, or how much it could
displace.  The only reason I give a crap is for resale purposes.  Can I
advertise my tank as a 145 or a 170?

There's a common tank size (6 feet x 2 feet x 18 inches).  This is a 135 on
the outside and a 120 on the inside.  Looking through the paper should I
assume a 135 and a 120 are the same tanks?  Maybe I'll just go to an
aquarium store with a tape measure and calculator.
