Glass Aquarium Sizes

2

Here is a handy aquarium dimensions chart listing popular glass aquarium sizes and their typical corresponding fish tank dimensions and weights.  Please note that the “Filled Weight” measurements account for the weight of the glass aquarium itself and the maximum capacity of water for the aquarium.  Actual finished weight will usually be higher as you add gravel, rock and other decorations.

For structural weight-bearing considerations, please don’t forget to add the weight of your aquarium stand, canopy, filters and any other aquarium accessories you will be including.
