The following table lists many of the most common sized fish tanks, along with dimensions, weight (empty and full), and whether the tank has a tempered glass bottom or not.

Note: the full weight includes the frame.

This table is included in the shareware book Fred the Fish and Starting a Freshwater Aquarium, which teaches you the basics of choosing aquarium equipment and fish, breaking-in a new aquarium, and maintaining your aquarium.
