Confused on Dimensions?

[ Edited ]

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

Re: Confused on Dimensions?

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!)

So the 2 straight sides are both ____ inches long?

Re: Confused on Dimensions?

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