Opinion on tank height

Just wondering if a tank with a height of 6.5" would be too shallow? The dimensions are 15" x 12.5" x 6.5", about 5.25 gallons.

That's pretty shallow. It may be hard to get a filter in that depth of water, be it internal or HOB. Plants or decorations may also poke out the top which might not be what you want either. Keep in mind if you have substrate that will lower the available space and it can't be filled to the top either.

That's what I thought too. Thanks!

There is a filter the could be in shallow water and that is a tetra Whisper. I recommend the 10i one.
