That's because larger tanks don't actually contain the entire gallons they are sold as. Some have smaller dimensions than normal, or by measuring the actual water it can hold it comes out to a lot less than expected due to the thickness of the glass. In many cases people just plug measurements into a calculator when they bought it used and went with that actual measurement, rather than comparing the dimensions to a list of sold sizes which can add sometimes another 20 some gallons that don't actually exist to the label.
Extremely true, my 55 only holds 52 gallons.
