This link seemed to have the most sizes;
Aquarium Shapes and Sizes | Old Town Aquarium
Scroll down to pentagons.
You could be 60 or 75 depending on measurements.
You may even be 90!
Having a hard time scaling to other things in picture.

Re: Soon to be new reef tank but

Thank you for the link. I have a 75gl yeeepppyyy. Not my old 90gl but this will make a real nice reef tank once I can get some other equipment that I need, plus the sand and live rock.

Re: Soon to be new reef tank but

Oh there will be a lot of pics once I can get it set up. Hope in the next couple of weeks I can at least get the sand, and live rock for it, but then try to figure out how to implement a sump, as the last reef tank that I had we had used a skimmer it took away from the tank it self. I know with a sump that I will need to have a overflow box on the back but at least I can somewhat hide that.
