Thanks! And Idk what youre talking about but...*smiles* :B Derp?!

I used a small (crappy) tetra filter that used an airrator, it came in my 1.5 water wonders kit. Its a tiny tiny whisper filter.

And thankiesssss, he shipped today! I WANT BALTHIER NOWWW.

I have that same tank, and it is NOT 5 gallons. It's only 3 gallons.

Lee's and Kritter Keeper brands look almost the same (actually, there are a lot of kinds that look the same), so its hard to judge.

Regardless~

If you want to know for sure, measure the Length width and height (water level), in inches, multiply together, then divide by 231.

Ex. My tank for Balthier is 5 gallons, at (8.5x 8(water levels low)x 16)/231, its currently roughly filled with 4.75 gallons :D

Here are the measurments. 14.5"X9.75"X8.75". :D Haha, that's exactly the filter I am now using in his tank Pew! Funny stuff! It is crappy, but the best I have for now. That's funny! Yay Balthier! :D
Here are some pics. :) I hope you like them?

It has exactly the same shape and top as the PetCo Pet Keeper I have, and the fish looks about the same proportion to Sequin when he's in the middle of the tank. That's how I'm pretty sure.
EDIT- The measurements you gave are EXACTLY the same as mine. That's DEFINITELY only 3 gallons.

5ish gallons, once you factor out the space for the substrate! Nice.

Thats pretty much what I did in mine (a half gallon QT), but used the circle at the top. That works, too, though :B Herp derp.

But 14.5X8.75X9.75=1237. Divide that by 231 = 5.35 gallons?
Pew - I was going to use the circle thing, but it was hard to break out and I was worried I was going to break the whole thing! So I just used scissors to cut a hole in the back. :) Did I mess up my math?
