The dimensions you listed are around 155 gallons.

However, if the tank is 24 inches high, the water rarely comes up that high. A very good example would be my tank. The actual tank dimensions are 6' x 2' x 2' which is around 150 gallons, however, the water probably comes up around 21 inches, maybe a little bit more. That means the actual tank holds around 125 gallons of water. You have to take this into account, especially when you add medication and fish.
