Ya, mine topped out at 290. I wish it were bigger but I'm struggling with this one as it is.

Mines a whopping 350. If I had to do it again I would probably get it another 6" deeper (front to back). I have had bigger tanks but this size is perfect. By the way my tank size is in litres so I guess in the end I don't measure up to the rest of you. My wife has said it is big enough and that's good enough for me.
