General aquarium FAQs


The only question that is a silly question, is one that isn't asked!
How do I calculate the volume of my aquarium?

The length x depth x width in metres, multiplied by 1000 will give the volume in litres.

To work this out you might need to convert inches to cm, the equation for this is 1inch = 2.54cm. For example 12 inches x 2.54 = 30.48cm. 30.48 / 100 = size in metres.
