    Size of a 75 gallon octagon shaped tank

    Can anyone tell me the size specs on a 75 gallon octagon tank? Im looking to purchase one off craigslist for around $100 bucks with stand lid and lights and I am just curious if I have enough room for it. Any help will be appreciated.

    What type of specs are you looking for ? The footprint it requires ?

    exactly I am looking for the footprint, the lady told me it was 4 ft high and that a person could climb in it...also does that seem like a deal?

    The tank itself is 4ft high ?

    I'm looking for specs for it but I cannot find anything for a 75 gallon octagon tank.

    If the tank is in good shape it seems like a good deal to me.

    What would you want to put in the tank ? That's more important. Make sure what you want to keep will be able to successfully be kept in a tank that is more tall than wide.

    Are you sure it's not a HEX? And if it is there are no 75 gallon hex tanks.

    It might be a flat back hex type tank, which isn't really a hex.

    They said octagon. They don't make octagon tanks. Remember Chuck Norris in The Octagon?

    I'm guessing it's a hexagon. ;)
