Pet Keeper Gallon Guide

The other stickied thread here with information on those pet keepers is false information. Use an online calculator. The correct formula for volume is LxWxH. The author of that thread did math wrong, here are the right calculations:


Petco "Pet Keepers" -
Large (14.5"L x 8.75"W x9.75"H) --- 5.4 US Gallons
Medium (11.75"L x 7.75"W x8"H) --- 3.2 US Gallons
Small (9.13"L x 6"W x 6.12"H) --- 1.5 US Gallons
Mini (7.13"L x 4.38"W X 5.5"H) --- 0.7 US Gallons

Lee's "Kritter Keepers" -
Mini - (7.13"L x 4.38"W x 5.5"H) --- 0.7 US Gallons
Small - (9.13"L x 6" x 6.63"H) --- 1.6 US Gallons
Medium - (11.75"L x 6.75"W x 8"H) --- 2.7 US Gallons
Large - (14.5"L x 8.75"W x 9.75"H) --- 5.4 US Gallons
X Large - (15.87"L x 8.37"W x 12.08"H) --- 6.9 US Gallons

I used the AqAdvisor ones. Maybe AqAdvisor rounds it up to 5.4 gallons.

What calculator are you using, and what would the correct calculation be?
