    FWIW 96x24x24 = 8'x2'x2'.

    to calculate the volume in gallons take 3/4th of the cubic feet move the decimal one digit to the right.

    2'x2'=4'*3/4=3 *8'=24 move decimal 240G

    How close was I? LOL

    awesome build also.

    Now you'all can amaze your friends at frag swaps, cocktail parties, LFS, and so on with your uncannly fast calculation of aquarium gallons.

    Still takes me longer than just memorizing the standard tank sizes LOL. and if there are inches involved you are completely screwed lol. just remember a 2'x2' is 60 gallons and you could calculate faster than (LxWxH)x(3/4)x(10). In this case 4x60 = 240 boom done.
