Not sure. How did you calculate it?

Could use this.

I used a different one. But with doing that I still got around 2.1-2.2g. Hmmm maybe they did something wrong?

They may be calculating for decorations, gravel, etc... who knows. These companies do dumb things.

According to that calculator my 150 gallon tank is actually 162.7 gallons.

Guess the manufacturers leave room for error.

Hm, I guess so. Thanks for all of your help! Hopefully I'll get this tank all set up and maybe get a new betta in the near future!

calculations are off because its probably 8x8x8 when measuring at the top, but the bottom being a bit narrower shouldn't be 8x8.
