So this is what I started with. It was on craigslist. Roughly 260 gallon, heavily calcified and mucky turtle tank.
The last pic should give perspective to my 1st challenge. Tha tank is trapezoidal on the left side, not rectangular.
The back is 84 inches long, the front is 72 inches long, width is 36 inches, and the height is 21 inches.
My second challenge is the tank stand is only 20" tall. This would make the aquarium a very convenient play thing for my two dogs. Needless to say, building a stand was a priority
