    here is a link to a converter site where you can write in the LxWxH i believe and they'll configure the gallon size for you.

    According to that calculator, it would be 523.64 gallons... is that right?

    Sorry about the photos but my camera takes very bad pictures. I used the converter and it says it's 327.27 gallons. The measurements I used were an approx.

    84 inches long (7ft)
    30 inches width (2.5 ft)
    30 inches Height (2.5 ft)

    I used 2.5 feet for the height because the whole enclosure is around 4 ft tall and the area the turtles are in is about half or a little bigger than half the height.

    I think 327.27 gallons sounds about right. If I had to do it again I would have built the water area a lot bigger. Maybe next time.

    Thanks for that link... I contacted the guy who wrote the script and got permission to put it on my site :)

    What a great enclosure! (So much work!) It looks like your turtle has already made himself at home. Really nice.
