Estimating Your Propane or Natural Gas Usage
For those of you who would like to estimate your propane or natural gas usage, here are some handy formulas.
Step 1. Calculate your desired temperature increase. Temperatures are in degrees Fahrenheit. Goal Temperature - Starting Temperature = Temperature Increase e.g. 75 degrees - 60 degrees = 15 degrees Step 2. Calculate the energy required to heat your fish tank to your goal temperature. Volume is in US gallons. Energy is in BTUs. Temperature Increase x Fish Tank Volume x 8.34 = Required Energy e.g. 15 degrees x 300 gallons x 8.34 = 37,530 BTU Step 3. Calculate the volume of propane or natural gas required to heat your fish tank to your goal temperature. (Propane BTU Conversion Factor: 91,333. Natural Gas BTU Conversion Factor: 85,250.) Required Energy / BTU Conversion Factor = Required Fuel e.g. 37,530 BTU / 91,333 = 0.41 gallons of propane required e.g. 37,530 BTU / 85,250 = 0.44 gallons of natural gas required / 0.012 = 36.7 cubic feet of natural gas required
BTU Conversion Factors were sourced from the
US Energy Information Administration.

Estimated High Range Limit: raises 2,500 gallons from 65 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit (25 degrees) in approximately 8 hours.
