Glass carboy, I'm assuming? 6.5 gal or 5 gal? Not that it really matters.
What type of beer? Ale or lager? Ales take a lot less time, so a 5 day ferment for an ale would be a lot better than for a lager.
Before you do anything else, duck tape the everliving crap out of that thing, so if it does crack on you, it won't slice you to ribbons.
Good luck. We're all counting on you.
