The tank should be certified, and should have some indented numbering and lettering that tells you exactly how big it is. What does the certification lettering/numbering say?

I can't pull up the photo, but at 12" high, I'd guess 5 lbs.

Looks like a 5-lb tank, and based on the fact you saw no clear markings, it might need to be hydroed when you take it for a fill. The charge shouldn't be a lot, but call around first. You might ask if they will provide you a loaner tank if the hydro takes a bit.
