Aqueons 92 gallon corner bowfront aquarium's dimensions are 48.5" X 34.3" X 25.2". Here is a picture of the aquarium:

My question is what part of the aquarium is 48.5", which is 34.3", and which is 25.2"?

Here is a lettered diagram of the tank:

And here a numbered measurements:

1. 48.5"

2. 34.3"

3. 25.2"

Could someone respond to me with what measurement goes where in Letter answer (number) format? For example:

A. 1

B. 2

C. 3

or

A. 3

B. 2

C. 1

A,B, and C are all the same length. If four of these tanks were put together corner to corner you could form a cylinder, right? A Circle with height. (Actually, one fish store in my area did this and has a free-standing display of 4 corner tanks formed as a cylinder in the middle of their showroom.)

All lines from the center of a circle to the circle itself are the same length, right? Therefore, A and B (and invisible C) are all 34.3" . The longest side is the curved side (48.5"). 25.2 is the height of the tank (Gravel to cover glass!)

Have fun dreaming and pay attention in your Plane Geometry class!

Hunach is correct. The front of the glas is the 48.5" and the **sides are the 34.3"** the height of the tank is 25.2".

Yes. I just thought Huach meant one side was 34.3" and one was 25.2". Thanks for clarifying it for me.
