View Full Version : Calculating Water Volume

04-03-2003, 03:15 AM

I need to know the exact volume of water in my five foot tank. Can anyone help? My tank is 58.5 inches x 17 inches (width) x 18 inches (height) and I have about 2 inches of gravel. The water level is 1.5 inches from the top. I know that you have to multiply the length, the width and the height and then divide by 231, but what about the 2 inches of gravel and the water level from the top which is 1.5 inches ? Thanks for any advice in advance.

Secondly can I feed bloodworms once a week to my Africans which are mainly Mbuna and Electric Blues Haps.

bloodworms have a very high fat content and have been linked to bloat. i don't feed my mbuna worms of any kind.
