I have a critter keeper that is 6 1/2 high, 7 w and 11 long. It holds1 gallon and a half. I'm not good in math but I would guess that yours is close to 5 gallons. Hope this helps.

lol, there is this site that sas 231 cubic inches is a gallon, so u multiply stuff, and divide it. Thats how i figured it out, 2.... but i didn't know if it was right.
