I don't know how much each of the kritter keepers hold, but your conversion formula is correct.

The ones at my petco are .25, 1.75, and 3 gallons. I know they're different for everyone though.

There are some at Petco that are about 3-4 gallons, good for a betta!

keep in mind if you're trying to use that formula that the kritter keepers generally taper down at the bottom. I think the measurements are at the largest point, so it'll probably be a bit less than the math would suggest

thanks so much everyone! mine is a little less than 2 gallons, and if i end up ordering a size or two bigger, i didn't want to accidentally get the same size i already have.

thanks again!

I just ordered one of the medium size (3 gallons) from Petco. Any issue with using a heater in there? Thanks!
