Does the tank or the water rise? Your question doesn't make that clear.

the change in the volume of the water in the tank equals the volume of the stone

so volume change = Pi(r^2)h, where r is the radius and h is the height

so V = Pi(24^2)(1.5) cu inches

= appr. 2714 cu inches.

24 inches isn't that the diameter
