Default Sizing dorm fridge for carboy

I am getting a 6 gal pet Carboy for fermenting. I do not know its size.

Perhaps someone can tell me the size or what size dorm fridge to get.

It's full and hard to measure at the moment, but my 6 gallon better bottle is around 12" across and nearly 24" tall with airlock.

You are looking in the 4.6-5.0 range. If you can find one with a full depth floor and a rear wall mounted coil instead of ceiling mounted coil you will be fine. Here is one I picked up today. It has the hump in the bottom. I had to notch the bottom door shelf for it to close.
