I suppose you could take the length and width of the tank and figure out the sq. inches of the rectangle they form, then figure out the areas of the four right triangles (if two sides of the tank are parallel you'd only have two right triangles) outside of the diamond and subtract. Multiply the remainder by the height of the tank to get your total sq. inches and convert. You should be able to get a conversion calculator at www.refdesk.com .
