anyone has the Aqueon Mini Bow 1?

I just got this tank but i have no idea how many gallons it holds......i tried to search it online but all i can find is the dimension which is 8"Wx6"Dx9"H. i hope someone can tell me how many gallons of water it holds so i can prepare for other stuff (AQ salt, medication....) appropriately, thanks!

Centimetres are much easier to work with in calculating volume.

The equation is (WcmxDcmxHcm) / 1000 = volume in litres

So, let’s start by converting your inches into centimetres.

8"Wx6"Dx9"H = 20.3cm x 15.2cm x 22.9cm

Take that to our equation:

20.3cm x 15.2cm x 22.9cm = 7066 (rounded)

7066 / 1000 = 7 litres (rounded)

Convert this to US gallons I presume = 1.8 US gallons (approximately)

All this converting and rounding will have probably lost you some, so let’s presume you’ve got around a 2 gallon tank there, which when filled wouldn’t be exactly 2 gallons, but there you go anyway :)

It's a bowfront, so the dimensions aren't entirely useful/accurate for calculating volume. I'm fairly certain Aqueon's number in the tank name indicates the volume in gallons. If you're not certain contact their customer support or use a 1 gallon milk jug or other liquid measuring device like a cup and fill the tank, do the math based on what unit of measure you used to fill the tank to convert to gallons. Fairly certain it is 1 gallon though. I had the 2.5 and it was about 2.5 gallons.
