Aren't those things like 1/4 and 1/2 and 1 gallons? Do they actually make them bigger? ETA: I guess the medium is about 3 gallons, but I wonder if they're including the lid in the volume which you wouldn't fill..
I have the Large critter keepers from Petsmart. Potentially, they could hold slightly more than 3 gallons....
But I know they DO hold 3 gallons, because that's the amount of water that I put in each time.
The exact capacity depends on the brand. Petco's, Lee's, and Petsmart's all have just slightly different dimensions.
Bringing it back to the OP's decision - glass is a good way to go. It'll be more durable in the long run, than something like a critter keeper.
