Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

1 Gallon [Fluid, US] = 0.133680556 Cubic Feet

120000 gallons = 0.133680556*120000 cubic feet

                         =16041.66672 cubic feet


volume = length* width*depth

16041.66672 = 120*25*depth

3000*depth = 16041.66672

                   = 5.3472 feet........................................answer

                  = 5.35 feet.............................................answer( rounding off)


 depth of the tank in feet = 5.35 feet

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.....thank you
