That depends. If the sides are 16 inches wide by 23 inches high then the aquarium will hold about 66.2 US gallons or about 55.1 Imperial gallons. If the sides are 23 inches wide by 16 inches high then the capacity is about 95.2 US gallons or about 79.3 Imperial gallons.

SOURCE: calculate gallons of a tank

I assume the length of a side is 16 in, and the height of the prism is 23 inches.
Volume of a prism is V_prism=(Area of base)*(height of prism)
Area of base is made up of the area of the 6 equilateral triangles with sides =16 inches. The height of such triangles is given by 8*SQRT(3).
Use the Pythagorean theorem or the trigonometric ratios to find the height of each of the 6 traingles.
Area of base =6*16*(8*SQRT(3))/2 sq in
Volume =6*8*8*23*SQRT(3) cubic inches
Calculate the value in cubic inches and convert to gallons: I leave that task to you.

### How much water goes in an 36x 25 fish tank how many gallons

volume requires 3 measurements:
height, width and depth (from front to back)

Once you have the 3 dimensions you can multiply them together to get the volume in whatever unit you measure in, Centimeters/Inches/feet etc.

once you have your volume you can google a conversion table to figure out your unit to gallons/litres/ etc.

### 72in x 29in x 24in how many gallons calculator

72 x 29 x 24 = 50,112 cubic inches / 1728* = 29 cubic feet. There are 7.48 gallons per cubic foot, so the tank is actually 216.92 gallons, assuming the dimensions given are inside measurements. I hope you have a strong stand and floor because the water alone weighs 1735.36 pounds (8 pounds per gallon).

*12 x 12 x 12 = 1728 (cubic inches to cubic feet conversion)

### Cloudy water that stinks

1st priory is to save the fish !! move them to a new container consisting of half old water and half new water (declorinated) along with a small air bubbler !! this should help your fish to recover (don't use soap to clean out container it is toxic to fish) moist table salt is best to use for a cleaning agent and rinse well b4 putting fish inside

then ck to see if your aquarium is pumping water thru the filter and falling back into tank ( replace all the water in the tank 1st with two rinses ) make needed repairs to pump and or filter assembly (New filter cartridge) new pump impellers and cartridges are available for purchase for your aquarium from vendors that sell aquariums and allways ck the outlet the pump is plugging in b4 blaming a pump fail with a known good table light set to "On" they do go off once and an a while
verify that water chemistry is ok b4 retuning fish to tank and observe fish for strange behavior for next several hours ( upside down swimming, laying sideways )

### How to care for siamese fighting fish when breeding

This is the PC Desktop Problem page you should post problems in the appropriate section
However

Siamese fighters, also known as Siamese fighting fish or bettas, are colorful freshwater fish with long, flowing fins. They are known as hardy fish, and are relatively easy to care for. These fish can be aggressive, and two males kept in the same aquarium will often fight each other, hence their name. Because of this aggression, breeding bettas can sometimes be a bit tricky. Care must be taken to ensure that the female betta is not injured. However, when the proper steps are taken, breeding Siamese fighters can be a success.

Set up a breeding aquarium. This aquarium should be small, only 10 gallons, and should have only about 6 inches of fresh water in it. Place tall plants in the aquarium. These plants will provide a place for the male to anchor his bubble nest. This nest is where the eggs will be kept once their laid. You can also provide an artificial anchor, such as half a styrofoam cup, if you feel it's necessary. Place a thermometer in the breeding aquarium and monitor the temperature of the water. When breeding, Siamese fighters prefer a temperature that hovers right around 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Place a divider in one side of the aquarium. This can be a regular aquarium divider, or a glass chimney. The divider will protect the female from the male until their ready to breed. However, the divider should let the male see the female, so that he will begin preparing to breed. Find a healthy pair of bettas. Male bettas usually have longer fins that the female fish. Males also tend to be more colorful than the female bettas, which can appear somewhat washed out. Place the male in the largest part of the aquarium. Place the female behind the divider. Condition the fish, preparing them to breed. Do this by feeding both the male and female fish live or frozen, then thawed, meaty foods, such as brine shrimp or bloodworms. Observe the fish. When the male is ready to breed, he will begin to construct a bubble nest. This nest will be clearly visible at the top of the aquarium, and will be several layers deep when it's finished. When the female is ready to breed, she will display dark bars along her sides. A white breeding tube will also show under her pelvic fin. Release the female into the main part of the aquarium, with the male. The male will chase the female around, and may bite or nip, in order to entice the female under the bubble nest. The male will then wrap around the female, squeezing until the female releases the eggs. Remove the female as soon as the spawning is over, or the male may kill her. The male will continue caring for the eggs, and later, for the young fish, until they are free swimming.

### Aquarium water is cloudy

This can happen and will generally clear with time, if you are concerned do a water change. I find that this treatment is more hassle than its worth, if you have a suitable filter seachem denitrate is a good alternative, or he aquarium pure balls.

### What is a flow rate in aquarium water pumps?

A flow rate is the amount of gallons your water pump can push in an hour. Water pump should be able to push five times as many gallons as the of the tank. For example if you have a 20 gallons tank you'll need to use a water pump with a minimum of 100 gallons flow rate.

### How do I know how many fish I can fit in my aquarium?

There are some limiting factors like the oxygen availability and the filtration processing. I gave you some examples below they all refer for small or large freshwater fish.

3 cm of adult fish length per 4 liters of water.1 cm of adult fish length per 30 square centimeters of surface area. 1 inch of adult fish length per US gallon of water. 1 inch of adult fish length per 12 square inches of surface area.

### How to kil hydra

Things You'll Need:
• Aquarium vacuum
• Fish food
• Commercial medication (optional)
• Step 1:Vacuum the aquarium. Sweep the bottom of the tank with the vacuum to remove the hydra and a majority of their food sources. Use the aquarium vacuum as needed to keep the freshwater aquarium clean. This will prevent more hydra from appearing in your aquarium.
• Step 2:Replace any lost water. Vacuuming the aquarium will pull out a fair amount of water. Replenish the aquarium with additional freshwater. Northern State University suggests using freshly collected pond water or rain water.
• Step 3:Reduce the amount of food you feed the fish in the tank. Temporarily decreasing the amount of food will result in larger fish feeding on the hydra and eliminating a source of food for the hydra. If food is unavailable, hydra reproduction will cease and they will eventually shrink then die.
• Step 4:Repeat these steps as necessary. Continue the three-step process until all signs of hydra are gone. Negligence in cleaning the tank or feeding the fish ample amounts will allow the hydra to feed as well, and thus rapidly reproduce. Continuing the steps is also a maintenance measure that will prevent additional hydra from developing in your freshwater aquarium.
Tips & Warnings
• Aquarium-supply stores sell various medications that reportedly kill hydra.
• The steps you take to kill freshwater hydra could also kill small fish in your tank. Prepare to lose some small freshwater fish fry in the process.
